Mental Illness Stigma Laboratory
Our laboratory conducts research into stigma about mental illness. We use a range of methodologies to examine stigma about severe and complex mental health conditions in particular, such as schizophrenia spectrum disorders and borderline personality disorder. This research often examines how and why these mental health issues are stigmatized in the general public or in clinical settings, and what the experience of stigma is like for people living with these conditions.
The Mental Illness Stigma Lab (MISL) works in close partnership with leading mental health organisations and in particular, SANE Australia and its Anne Deveson Research Centre. Through these partnerships, MISL conducts impactful research, teaching and public engagement initiatives addressing the problem of mental illness stigma
