Beyond Stigma: Bringing the Conversation About Mental Illness Forward

Many mental illnesses often develop in young adulthood, when stigma and discrimination against people with these disorders can have a significant impact on their ability to seek treatment and recover. Carter Center stigma expert Rebecca Palpant Shimkets moderated a discussion with Dr. Mark McLeod, director of Emory University Counseling Services; Billy Howard, 2011-2012 Rosalynn Carter Fellow for Mental Health Journalism and Step Inside My Head creator; Alison Malmon, Active Minds founder and CEO; and Kimberly Minor, mental health advocate and president of Active Minds at Georgia Perimeter College.
