80% of Catalans with mental disorders have been discriminated in some area of their life due to their mental health state


On September 30th we presented the study 'Stigma and discrimination in mental health in Catalonia 2016' at the Palau de la Generalitat, ceremony presided over by the Hon. Ms. Neus Munté, Minister of the Presidency of the Generalitat of Catalonia.

The study is the result of an investigation conducted by Obertament, the Autonomous University of Barcelona and Spora Sinergies, and developed with the collaboration of Obra Social ”la Caixa" and Janssen, in order to explore and identify psychosocial factors that are related to stigma and discrimination faced by people with a mental disorder in Catalonia.
