Ending Discrimination Against People with Mental and Substance Use Disorders-Chapter 3-6

About the Course:

To change health-related public norms and behaviors, public health organizations often partner with communication scientists. Health-related behavior is influenced by a range of structural, social, and psychological factors, which include access to health-related resources, prevalent social norms, and personal agency and intentions. Communication strategies can influence all of these factors, and communications strategies and communication science perspectives are relevant across structural, public, and self-stigma.
