The Guidelines to reduce stigma is a series of four Guides to reduce stigma, produced by The International Federation of Anti-Leprosy Associations (ILEP). The Guides are for all managers, health workers and social workers and service staff who have to deal with stigma; they have been found to be useful for reducing stigma in mental health.
The first Guide provides basic information on stigma, its causes, manifestations, and effects. The second Guide describes when and how to access stigma using qualitative and quantitative methods and instruments. The third Guide provides recommendations on how to develop an approach for reducing stigma. The fourth Guide explains the use of counselling at a basic level in dealing with stigma.
