1031: Magic Mirror on the Wall: Using Reflective Practice and the Theme of Hope to Reduce the Stigma of Mental Illness and Mental Health Nursing: An Innovative, Student-Centered Approach to Preparing the Next Generation of Psychiatric Mental Health Nurses
Stigma remains prevalent and misunderstood in our society. While anti-stigma campaigns are necessary and productive, real transformational change occurs at the level of the individual. Reflective practice and the use of the recovery model is presented as a method to identify stigmatizing behaviors and transform the concept and practice of stigma related perceptions and language in undergraduate nursing students.
