Mental Health Conversations: Ending the Stigma Around Mental Health

A Conversation Series on Mental Health
Matthew Scott

WFAE

We discuss overcoming the stigmas that keep people from accessing mental health care, the early signs that mental health care is needed and how to find the right provider and services.

WFAE hosted a five-part series on mental health. We talked to experts on the stigmas around mental health, accessing care, finding the right therapist, alternative forms of therapy, and the role of religion and spirituality in mental health care.
