Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

This section provides an overview of studies and evidence from English-speaking countries including the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. We have also included selected evidence from other countries where it has been published in English language. The aim is to examine both ‘what works’ and ‘promising practice’ in tackling stigma and discrimination towards people with mental health problems generally and for people with depression specifically. The reason for selectively broadening our review beyond the participating EU countries is to ensure that wider learning can then help to shape best practice.
