The Carter Center Hosts Launch of American Journal of Public Health’s First Theme Issue on Stigma

On April 18, 2013, former U.S. First Lady and Carter Center Co-Founder Rosalynn Carter and former Congressman Tony Coelho joined experts from the federal government and other mental health officials to discuss new research published in the American Journal of Public Health’s first theme issue on stigma against people with mental illness at The Carter Center in Atlanta.

The theme issue is among the first public health publications ever devoted to new research on mental illness stigma and was sponsored by The Carter Center, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, with additional support from the National Association of County Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities Directors.

The special journal issue, which features new research on the public’s understanding of mental illness, the health im-pacts of stigma, and more than 30 other expert articles on a range of issues, can be found at www.ajph.org.

    about it in such a remarkable way is a great gift.
    Your insightful article possesses the ideal mixture of passion and well-written, interesting material
    that I’ve come to appreciate and respect.
