The March 2023 session of Diverse Voices: Intersectionality and the Health of Women, titled “Intersectional Stigma and Mental Health,” will feature presentations from Drs. Melissa DuPont-Reyes and Janet Turan. Dr. DuPont-Reyes will discuss using an intersectional lens to examine mental health concerns among adolescents, and Dr. Turan will discuss her recent work that focuses on analytical approaches for measuring intersectional stigma. Session attendees will learn about (1) how to use intersectionality to enhance understanding of the interaction between stigmatized mental health disorders and multiple marginalized identities and (2) how to advocate for health care and research interventions to expand our capacity to attend to intersectional stigma and social context.
