The AHA, together with behavioral health and language experts from member hospitals and partner organizations, has created a continuing series of “People Matter, Words Matter” posters to help health care workers and others adopt person-first, respectful language that aims to reduce stigma surrounding issues such as suicide, substance use disorder, pediatric and adolescent mental health and others. The posters are free and can be printed and shared with team members. DOWNLOAD NOW
