The Playbook, developed with input from more than 30 experts, offers detailed strategies for each Core Element and is designed to be used by organizations establishing or considering Anticoagulation Stewardship programs, as well as those with existing programs in place.

People Matter, Words Matter

People matter and the words we use to describe them or the disorders they have matter. Words can transmit stigma. Studies have shown that people with psychiatric and/or substance use disorders often feel judged, outside and inside the health care system. This can lead them to avoid, delay or stop seeking treatment. The way we talk about people with a behavioral disorder can change lives – in either a positive or negative manner.

You will find downloadable posters that address:

  • Use of Supportive Language That Makes a Person Feel Safe
  • Destigmatizing Language About Suicide
  • Culturally/Racially Aware Language
  • Perceptions about Mental Health Conditions
  • Using People First Language
  • Use of Compassionate SUD Language
