The lives of people with disease and disability are worsened by stigma, thus leading to public prejudice, loss of self-worth, and negative implications for health and well-being. Stigma and Health serves as a venue for articles examining research representing stigma in its various guises as it impacts people living with mental and physical illness.
Stigma and Health publishes peer-reviewed, original research articles that may include tests of hypotheses about the form and impact of stigma, examination of strategies to decrease stigma's effects, and survey research capturing stigma in populations. Stigma and Health especially welcomes research studies on methods meant to erase the stigma of mental and physical illnesses. Theoretical reviews and pioneering reports on innovations are also welcome.
The journal publishes regular articles as well as brief reports.
