We are pleased to announce that the 8th International Together Against Stigma Conference will be held in Copenhagen, Denmark, September 20th-22nd, 2017.

Stigma of mental illness is a global challenge resulting in discrimination and exclusion from social life, education and the labor market. The conference will provide an opportunity to establish links between representatives of programs against stigma in different countries and professions as well as people with lived experience of mental illness.

The aim is to create an overview on research, campaigns and other initiatives combatting stigma as well as providing a deeper understanding of effective methods for identifying and challenging knowledge, attitudes and behavior constituting barriers in minds and society.

The conference is relevant for professionals, researchers, anti-stigma campaigners, politicians, people with lived experience of mental illness and their carers as well as others with a special interest in the field.

The conference is hosted by the Danish national anti-stigma campaign ONE OF US in collaboration with the World Psychiatric Association’s (WPA) Stigma Section.
