The Science of Stigma: What we know about Stigma & What we can do to address it

Have you ever wondered: Why do some conditions get stigmatized and others don’t? How is stigma manifested? What perpetuates stigma? What can I do to reduce the negative impact of stigma? The Center has been exploring stigma and how stigma is associated with a variety of negative social and health outcomes. Researchers of stigma commonly differentiate between three levels of stigma: public or societal stigma, personal or self-stigma, and structural stigma. Understanding stigma at these interconnected levels can help researchers and stakeholders to identify targeted anti-stigma efforts across the social ecology. In this webinar, Dr. Kari Finley will discuss how stigma negatively influences a variety of health conditions and how we can reduce stigma in our work to improve health and safety.

But sometimes you worry that you love NatCon too much. As one past attendee, who said she felt “energized” by the experience, nonetheless added, “The fanfare felt at odds given the conditions and challenges my patients face.”

We’ve heard these concerns before. But why should we – who make it our business to care for our nation’s health and wellbeing – expect less than our colleagues in other industries? Is making money more important than saving lives? If we think we deserve less, we may pass that downtrodden attitude along to the very people we seek to uplift.

Everything about the National Council conference is done to honor you. There is plenty of time for hard work, but precious little time to recharge. The best part is, if you register today, you can have all that we offer at a discounted price. But hurry – Early Bird pricing ends February 9

Policy Brief on Understanding the Impact of Suicide in Rural America

In 2015, an American took their own life roughly every 12 minutes, making suicide the 10th leading cause of mortality in the United States. Although suicide affects both rural and urban residents, rural populations face persistent and widening increases in suicide compared to their urban counterparts. Following the Fall 2017 meeting in Boise, Idaho, the National Advisory Committee on Rural Health and Human Services sent a policy brief to the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services that recommends an increased federal focus on the at-risk rural populations.
