Journal of Mental Health, 1 May 2013). In Challenging the Stigma of Mental Illness, Patrick Corrigan and colleagues seek to provide a practically focused text that is grounded in the experience and narratives of those who have struggled with the impact of stigma on their lives. A particular strength is that it does not shy away from some more difficult areas such as recognising that mental health professionals may be complicit in ‘othering’ people with mental health difficulties to much the same extent as the general population.

  • This book should be read by treatment providers, family members and people diagnosed with mental illness alike. It sheds light on the issues facing those with mental illness in society. It helps those with mental illness know that they are not alone in the stigma that they face, and offers suggestions for ways that people can advocate for themselves. It also offers suggestions for treatment providers and community advocates for how to advocate for others, how to treat people with mental illness from a strengths based perspective (as opposed to a stigmatizing one), and gain understanding into the daily lives of people with mental illness. It gives both empirical data and evidence to support its claims as well as case studies and anecdotal information. Well written and easy to read and understand.

  • This book is well-researched but also intelligible to a lay reader. I am a lawyer with a case involving an individual who could be stigmatized and the book gave me what I needed to get "up to speed" on the topic.

  • This is an incredible resource for anyone interested in understanding and working to eliminate the stigma of mental illness. Corrigan and colleagues do a fabulous job incorporating a vast field of theory, research, and lived experience and making it accessible and useful to advocates and professionals. It is really a step by step guide for implementing local anti-stigma campaigns based in the best available evidence for what works. The real life examples bring the concepts to life and make the book an engaging read. Anyone interested in challenging mental illness stigma should have this in their advocacy tool box.
