While we know that people with mental illness and addiction often face stigma in Canadian society, we may be surprised to learn that they face it within healthcare environments as well.
The Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC) and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) launched a free online course called Understanding Stigma, designed to help healthcare providers and frontline clinicians develop strategies to improve care for people with mental health and addiction problems.
This self-directed course is available in both official languages and consists of three modules that focus on raising awareness, the impacts of stigma, and challenging stigma and discrimination.
Understanding Stigma is being hosted on CAMH’s website, making it easily accessible to healthcare providers and frontline clinicians Canada-wide. We invite all members from the healthcare sector to complete this free online course, designed to complement their strategies in understanding stigma.
