Stigma and discrimination against people with mental illnesses exist worldwide. But in Liberia, The Carter Center has gained valuable insight into how they affect individuals, families, and communities through the research of medical anthropologist and psychiatrist Dr. Brandon Kohrt. His findings are helping the Center and its partners, including the Liberia Ministry of Health and Social Welfare, tailor strategies to reduce stigma and provide better care and support for people with mental illnesses as the nation works to build a sustainable mental health care system.
Founded in 1982 by former U.S. President Jimmy Carter and former First Lady Rosalynn Carter in partnership with Emory University, The Carter Center is committed to advancing human rights and alleviating unnecessary human suffering. The Center wages peace, fights disease, and builds hope worldwide.
