Stigma & Social Exclusion

Indiana University is the home of the National Stigma Studies and includes scientists who have researched the prejudice and discrimination attached to mental illness, opioid addiction, alcohol abuse, autism, epilepsy and HIV/Aids. This has centered on understanding the roots of stigma, the development of interventions, and the scientific vetting and efficacy of change efforts.
