COSSAP Webinar: The Deflection Conversation Framework: Adapting Language to Reduce Stigma

TASC's CHJ is committed to ensure that our actions and words are consistent with reducing stigma. This webinar offers insight into ways individuals working in deflection can reduce stigma when interacting with those suffering from mental health disorders or substance use disorders.

It also highlights the language that can lead to stigma and the current acceptable language that should be used to help reduce stigma, increase community awareness, and provide insight that allows individuals access to care. The webinar concludes with a question-and-answer session with attendees.
