The German Alliance for Mental Health, in the framework of the anti-stigma project, published a research paper on "Conception and implementation of interventions to destigmatize mental illness: recommendations and results of research and praxis". The purpose of this project is to conceptualize and implement an intervention based on scientific facts, focusing on relevant target groups and including an evaluation to achieve sustainable effects in reducing stigma and discrimination because of mental illness. This analysis contains current theories and research results regarding stigma and anti-stigma work, an international literature review of anti-stigma interventions, a survey of unpublished German antistigma interventions, and an investigation of the needs of people with mental illness and their families.The complete analysis is available here (in German only) and the summary (in English) here.
