Stigma and discrimination in NSW

To support conversations and actions that reduce stigma and discrimination against people with mental illness, the Commission contracted the University of Melbourne to provide a report on the NSW findings from the National Surveys of Mental Health Literacy and Stigma and National Survey of Discrimination and Positive Treatment.

To highlight and synthesise findings, issues and implications, the Commission has produced the summary report as a companion document. 

Data from the University's report has been included in One year on: Progress report on the implementation of Living Well: A Strategic Plan for Mental health in NSW 2014-2024.
