The 3 Levels of Stigma

In this ultra brief video from the One Minute Medical School at UBC, a nifty hand drawing accompanies narration about the three dimensions of stigma: self, social, and structural.

It goes on to talk about the work of the CREST.BD bipolar disorders research group on how best to address stigma.

Compact and informative, this is a great piece of knowledge translation about an important topic in mental health.
