Anti-stigma in Media

Ashley Smith, Author/CPS (Keynote Speaker) at
Georgia Mental Health Consumer Network annual conference
(St. Simon's Island, Georgia, August 2014)

I am honored by the privilege and opportunity to have come into contact with journalists, radio hosts, and others across the country that supported anti-stigma efforts by promoting my personal experience living with schizophrenia. However, I also engage in in-person anti-stigma activities that are not always recorded on media channels, and that is okay, I enjoy getting the word out by sharing my story to help change people's perspectives on mental illness.  Below are some articles and interviews:

The Art of Stigma (Virtual Panel Discussion with Janssen Pharmaceuticals, November 2018)
BET: Health Hero (article)
Black America Web: Living with Schizophrenia
CNN: Human Factor
Living with Schizophrenia: A Call for Hope and Recovery (documentary)
NAMI Athens, Ohio (radio interview with Tom Walker)
Real Health: Let's Get Real About Mental Health (article)
Free Your Mind Projects (radio interview)
The Tavis Smiley Show (radio interview)
Women are Worthy (radio interview with Jackie Charles)

Please let me know your response to these articles and interviews.
