Fear and stigma in the community

Public health emergencies are stressful times for people and communities. Fear and anxiety about a disease can lead to social stigma toward people, places, or things. Stigma affects the emotional or mental health of stigmatized groups and the communities they live in. Stopping stigma is important to making communities and community members resilient. Stop stigma by knowing the facts and sharing them with extended family, friends, and others in your community. Key words: Racism, Bias, Prejudice, Hate, Strengths, Assets, Resilience, Funeral
