Report of the 28th Annual Rosalynn Carter Symposium On Mental Health Policy: Beyond Stigma: Advancing the Social Inclusion of People With Mental Illnesses (PDF)
This report of the 2012 Rosalynn Carter Symposium on Mental Health Policy is organized along similar lines to the symposium itself but not bound by them. Its sections are delineated by the same topics — stigma and social inclusion, housing, employment, and integrated care and wellness — but each section pulls relevant ideas and statements from the event's entirety rather than solely from its associated panel discussion. Both keynote addresses are summarized, and recommendations from the symposium's working groups are called out in detail. Finally, the end of the report features a comprehensive list of the many resources — organizations, programs, websites, studies, books, and so forth — shared over the symposium's one-and-a-half days.
