[Special invitation presentation] This presentation will explore the phenomenon of stigma as it applies to individuals experiencing mental illness in the rural community of Casper, Wyoming. A review of literature revealed evidence suggesting that general practitioners, mental health providers and lay community members often stigmatize individuals experiencing mental illness (Lauber, Nordt, Falcato, Rössler, 2004; Phelan & Link, 2004; Read & Harre, 2001). Using a social distance scale (Link, Phelan, Bresnahan, Stueve, & Pescosolido, 1999), attitudes of general practitioners, mental health providers and lay community members towards individuals experiencing mental illness will be measured. Outcomes of this study will be given along with a discussion of nursing?s role in working towards eliminating these stigmatizing behaviors.
