​Stigma is the shame and discrimination associated with mental illness. This workshop includes information on the Recovery Model, Recovery Language, and Hufsa’s powerful story of overcoming self-stigma to view mental illness not as a deficit, but as a strength.

  • Audience members will learn the process for deciding whether to self-disclose

​My second TEDx talk was on this topic and I have given this program about 10 times. (TEDx talk is under review by TED and will be posted on Youtube soon.)
