Advice to the National Mental Health Commission on the National Stigma and Discrimination Reduction Strategy

In October 2021 Mental Health Australia held a Members Policy Hub with members and mental health consumers and carers on Reducing Stigma and Discrimination. This Members Policy Hub resulted in Advice to the National Mental Health Commission on the development of the National Stigma and Discrimination Reduction Strategy. The Advice welcomes the National Mental Health Commission’s focus on structural stigma and discrimination but notes that this should not come at the expense of consideration about reducing self or social stigma. The advice also welcomes the draft Guiding Principles developed by the NMHC to develop the Strategy and provides recommendations about how best to approach each of them.
