Abstract

ABSTRACT: Stigma is consistently recognized as a major barrier in the recovery from mental illness (MI). In addition to stigma among the general population, the MI-related stigma among healthcare providers often creates critical obstacles to access and quality care. Nursing educators who used the photovoice participatory learning activity to teach students how to identify labeling and stigma observed an increase in mental health awareness.
