Book review

This book makes a highly innovative
contribution to overcoming the stigma and discrimination associated with mental
illness – still the heaviest burden both for those afflicted and those caring
for them. The scene is set by the presentation of different fundamental
perspectives on the problem of stigma and discrimination by researchers,
consumers, families, and human rights experts. Current knowledge and practice
used in reducing stigma are then described, with information on the programmes
adopted across the world and their utility, feasibility, and effectiveness. The
core of the volume comprises descriptions of new approaches and innovative
programmes specifically designed to overcome stigma and discrimination. In the
closing part of the book, the editors – all respected experts in the field –
summarize some of the most important evidence- and experience-based
recommendations for future action to successfully rewrite the long and
burdensome ‘story’ of mental illness stigma and discrimination.
