Fighting Stigma

Fighting Stigma is all about embracing who we are and facing the challenges in life with grace, humour and knowledge. We talk about the stigma and discrimination faced by people who have personal experiences of mental health and/or disabilities, as well as self-stigma, and ways to face this as best we can. Hosts Vanessa and Tim share their own experiences of mental health and disability and offer suggestions on skill and strategies that they have found made a difference for them. One of the greatest barriers to recovery is discrimination and the show aims to change people’s attitudes and behaviour. Information shared is researched weekly to give listeners a better view of the broad spectrum of mental health and disability. A wide range of topics are covered, from different diagnoses, to what is being said in the news about mental health. Fighting Stigma provides practical tips and skills that can impact positively on our mental health and general wellbeing, including guest speakers who share their knowledge and give depth to topics that affect us all. We invite you to take the time to listen to the show and think about your own mental health and well being. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/empowering.journeys
