Although positively evaluated and successfully implemented elsewhere, the evaluation results from Central LHIN Phase I indicated that some of the positive changes gained by participants were not maintained at a three-month follow-up. One of the recommendations from the evaluation report was to implement additional "booster" sessions after the initial training to reduce or stop this regression back to baseline levels over time. Understanding Stigma Phase II is the follow-up project to the original Central LHIN project. Phase II incorporates the learning and strengths from the original program with additional booster sessions to create a more refined and potentially more effective program.
