Project brief  

This study identified and reviewed the effectiveness of community and population-based initiatives to reduce stigma associated with depression, anxiety and suicide. Interventions were divided into subcategories according to the target population (national or regional community campaigns or individuals within particular population groups, such as culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) communities), the mode of delivery (in-person or web-based) and the intervention setting (workplaces, schools, tertiary education institutions). The review will help to plan and implement a stigma reduction initiative suitable for Australia.
