APHA Devotes an Entire Issue to Discrimination and Stigma

The American Journal of Public Health is devoting an entire issue to covering stigma and discrimination against people with mental health conditions, a topic that the American Public Health Association (APHA), which publishes the journal, calls “traditionally under-researched and under-reported.” Among the research and commentaries that will be included in the issue are the following: “Global public understanding of mental illness high, yet social stigma persist”; “Commentary: Anti-stigma programs needed to supplement laws made to protect persons with mental illness”; “Public stigma can lead to psychological distress among transgender populations; peer support may be the remedy.” These articles (not yet posted) will be available online at, and are currently scheduled to appear in the May 2013 print issue of the Journal. If you are not a member of the press or of APHA, or a subscriber, online single issue access is $30 and online single article access is $22.
