The Understanding Stigma project looks at the ways health care providers may inadvertently stigmatize people with mental health and addiction problems. The free, self-directed course proposes strategies to help physicians identify and improve stigmatizing attitudes and behaviours, which will enhance patient–provider interactions and lead to better care for people with mental health and addictions problems. It is available in both official languages and consists of three modules: raising awareness, understanding the impacts of stigma, and challenging stigma and discrimination.
