    Abstract

    As part of the Anti-Stigma Programme European Network sites were to conduct a literature review on stigma in their country. In Slovenia, besides the peer review publications and reports, we also included all media reports on stigma in the last five years to illustrate the impact of various professional and public initiatives to reduce stigma and discrimination against depression. The Slovenian report includes several areas of mental health stigma defined through peer reviewed literature and other professional publications.
