Beyond Stigma was founded in Ireland and is dedicated to advancing the country's understanding and awareness of self-stigma. Beyond Stigma has supported masters level research projects at Trinity College Dublin in the fields of Global Health and Public Health and Primary Care. Beyond Stigma has been active in presenting our research and knowledge of self-stigma in Ireland in order to inform policy makers and those working in international health and wellness.
In partnership with Trinity College Dublin, Beyond Stigma is researching self-stigma amongst those diagnosed with obesity in Ireland. Weight bias and shame has become increasingly common and can be an immense source of distress for those diagnosed with obesity.
