Angleterre : "Une étude montre que nous avons besoin de plus de d'aides pour éliminer la stigmatisation"

le 30 novembre 2012

"Time to Change" is urging more people to join the movement after a new global study, published in The Lancet, has revealed that over three quarters  (79%) of people with depression report experiencing some form of discrimination.

The study, led by Professor Graham Thornicroft at King’s College London’s Institute of Psychiatry (IoP) – who also evaluates the progress of Time to Change - found that over a third (34%) of participants reported that they had been avoided or shunned by other people because of their mental health problems. Anticipated discrimination had prevented over a third (37%) of participants from initiating a close personal relationship, and a quarter (25%) had not applied for work at some point because they expected that they would be discriminated against.
