Abstract

The World Health Organisation (WHO) asserts that to reduce increasing burden of mental disorders,
priority should be on mental health prevention and promotion. One of WHO’s four Mental Health Global Action Program strategies is to reduce stigma towards mental illness as it impedes recovery of people experiencing mental illness. Reducing stigma is becoming an increasingly important focus for research, policy and education, particularly in mental healthcare environments where some of the most deeply felt stigma comes from front line healthcare providers.
