    How Mental Illness Stigma Affects Patients and Mental Health Professionals

    Society has been stigmatizing mental illness for thousands of years. It began with the notion that those with a mental illness were possessed by demons and it later evolved into calling those with mental illness witches. People with mental illness were treated inhumanely, chained to walls and housed or imprisoned with other "undesirables."It wasn't until the 1800s that mental hospitals were built but mental illness was still primarily considered to be a character flaw or moral failing. Between being characterized as possessed, witches, of poor character or of few morals, it's no wonder that mental illness became stigmatized and it's no wonder this stigma has followed those with mental illness to this day. And, unfortunately, mental illness stigma has been so strong, this stigma has also started to cling to some professionals who work with those with mental illness.

    3-Hours Virtual Seminar - Reporting HIPAA Breaches: Protection and Prevention

    Everyone in the healthcare industry knows about HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act), that has been in effect since 1996. The goal of the legislation was fairly simple - to safeguard our patient health information. The law dictated to entities how to protect health information (PHI), how it can be shared, when it can be shared, and with whom it can be shared. To date, even the best of healthcare organizations struggle with feeling confident that they have all the required areas covered to protect and prevent HIPAA violations from occurring in their organization. It is well documented that by initiating proper training and implementing effective monitoring tools, HIPAA violations can be reduced or more readily identified in the workplace. Often there is not clear communication to employees about "what constitutes a HIPAA breach" and how can this be reported in your organization without "fear of retaliation."
