From the Back Cover:

Mental illness deprives many people of opportunities to live full and independent lives within the realms of work, relationships, housing and health care. The stigma attached to mental illness within society often compounds this problem, impeding prospects still further. Therefore, just as researchers have developed practices for dealing with the clinical problems of mental illness, they also need to develop processes for dealing with the harmful effects of stigma.

Challenging the Stigma of Mental Illness provides practical strategies for addressing the two major forms of stigma: public stigma, which is prejudice and discrimination endorsed by the general population; and self-stigma, the loss of self-esteem and efficacy that occurs when an individual internalizes prejudice and discrimination. 

Written by highly respected and experienced experts in the field of stigma research, this book provides a guide to all stakeholders who work to challenge discrimination and its impact. Practical worksheets and interventions guidelines are included to assist readers in facilitating the implementation of effective anti-stigma strategies within a community.
