Do you, a friend, or family member face barriers to seeking help because of a worry of what others will think? Does the social stigma of having a mental health issue stop you from trying to get better?
Stigma may be one of the most detrimental factors in people not getting the help they need. Join the American Muslim Health Professionals (AMHP), the The Family & Youth Institute, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), and Imam Sohaib Sultan from Princeton University in an important discussion around the issue of Mental Health Stigma and what the American Muslim community can do to reduce the stigma and help our loved ones get the care they need.
This webinar was recorded on May 24th, 2016. You can still listen in on this important conversation. Registration is required.
