Smashing Stigma: Dismantling Stereotypes, Prejudice, and Discrimination (Library Binding)
Stigma is everywhere, from mistrust of unhoused people to discrimination based on weight. Having and discussing mental health challenges has been stigmatized for years until recently when high-profile actors, athletes, and professionals started to share their experiences. Where do these ideas come from and how are they perpetuated in our society? Readers will learn how to stop the spread of stereotypes and prejudice. Informational text on how to identify and confront stigma is paired with personal stories of people who have dealt with discrimination.
