The Together Against Stigma (TAS) conference is a biannual event organized under the auspices of the World Psychiatric Association. It serves as an international platform to share the latest developments, research outcomes and best practices.
We regret to inform you that due to the unfavorable epidemiological situation, which does not allow for easy travel, we are forced to postpone the Together against stigma conference until next year.
As a replacement, this year we will offer a short online program that will include one lecture on each of the published topics.
Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you next year!
Together Against Stigma conference will take place
- a) online between 18th and 20th October 2021
- b) offline (hopefully) in Prague 2022
Lectures and workshops
Healthy mindsets towards a healthier planet
Stigma jeopardizes the promotion of mental health and wellbeing. The ability to build and maintain mental well-being can help individuals to overcome even the most difficult life situations; and vice versa, a lack of mental well-being can generate distress even in favorable situations. With a highly globalized world largely influenced by consumerism, we are all too often subjected to chasing after materials and lifestyle that bring only temporary relief, rather than fostering longer-term promotion of internal resources. Consumerism in turn threatens larger scale planetary health, offsetting the ecosystem that keeps us alive and thriving. It is timely to revisit the drivers of human consumption and of skewed attitudes to mental health in order to build a future that works to buttress wellbeing and mental health. We need a better mindset for a healthy planet, and tackling stigma is a key step to achieving better outcomes for the global population.

The Municipal House facade is eyecatching not only due to its monumental architectural composition but also because of the unique profile created by its collection of the sculptural art of the time. Monumental allegorical figures, displayed all over the facade of the building, which were created by some of the greatest artists represent particular historical and classical cultural symbols (allegories of the nation, Prague, legendary characters and events, personification of art, philosophy, science, etc.), but they are also inspired by modern day symbols (allegories of industry, trade, transport).
