Discrimination and Stigma Against Patients with Depression and Bipolar Disorder
Kay Redfield Jamison, Ph.D., discusses the changes in societal views of mental illness in recent decades, largely due to scientific advances to explain causes and develop treatments. But she challenges the notion that scientific discovery is the only path needed to battle discrimination against people suffering from these very common diseases. This lecture was delivered at the Johns Hopkins 25th Annual Mood Disorders Research/Education Symposium on April 5, 2011. ______________________________ The Johns Hopkins Mood Disorders Center http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/psychiatry/specialty_areas/moods/ Kay Redfield Jamison, Ph.D. Faculty Profile http://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/psychiatry/expert_team/faculty/J/Jamison.html
