[Editorial] The health crisis of mental health stigma

Many people with mental illness experience shame, ostracism, and marginalisation due to their diagnosis, and often describe the consequences of mental health stigma as worse than those of the condition itself. Interventions to address stigma educate about mental illness and overcome the stereotypes that underlie prejudicial reactions. Along with pharmacological and psychological therapies, stigma interventions have emerged as potentially valuable and complementary tools.
