Instructions: Read the entire manual, as this will be your foundation for understanding the science behind addiction and health. The next module of this training will cover issues of stigma and human rights related to those with mental health conditions (including substance use issues), because stigma and violations of human rights are major barriers in the provision of care to these populations. Stigma and human rights violations can come from people in every part of society, including care providers, family, neighbors, employers, and government officials. This is why our first module starts by exploring these concepts and how they affect those who suffer from mental health or substance use disorders, and what you can do about it when you interact with them.
