    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.
