Stigma and mental illness( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the strongest deterrents to seeking mental health care is the stigma associated with mental illness in our society. Stigma affects not only those seeking treatment but also their families and caregivers. The aim of this book is to educate both professionals and the lay public on the pervasiveness of the stigmatization of mental illness, with the hope that education will inspire understanding. The book opens with firsthand accounts of stigma that poignantly portray what it is like to experience stigma and mental illness in our society--the pain of rejection by friends, the loss of individual rights, the closed door at every turn. These personal stories, one by a senior resident physician suffering from bipolar disorder and alcoholism, are powerful reminders of stigma's debilitating effects on all those touched by mental illness. Stigma is not a new problem. It can be traced as far back as ancient Greece. A historical overview examines selected periods in history and how perceptions toward mentally ill persons and toward stigma itself have changed over time. A review of stigma from a religious perspective reveals a historical association of mental illness with sin. Stereotypic caricatures as portrayed in the media and on film reinforce society's attitudes toward mentally ill individuals. The book examines societal issues from the points of view of the patient, the homeless mentally ill, and the families of both patients and caregivers. A fascinating look at how psychiatrists have been portrayed in films illustrates the problem of the stigmatized physician. Society's image of the psychiatric institution is the subject of a discussion on stigma in the psychiatric hospital--what it means for those who work with persons who are chronically mentally ill, the stigma surrounding ECT, and attitudes toward the deinstitutionalized patient. A note of encouragement is offered in the closing chapter on the effectiveness of educational theater in reducing stigma in one communication. It is hoped that this collection of diversified perspectives on stigma and mental illness will draw significant attention to a long-standing and serious problem

Moving beyond survival mode : promoting mental wellness and resiliency as a way to cope with urban trauma( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary explores how living in low-income, underserved communities puts individuals at risk for stress, ongoing trauma, depression and even mental health problems. Young Black Americans-who feel beaten down by the struggle to survive poverty, broken homes, child abuse, violent communities, poor schools, institutional racism, police harassment and other social ills-share their stories and their emotional injuries. Based on a national research project on the state of mind and mental health of low-income African Americans, this film focuses on the stresses and challenges African American families living in poor and at-risk communities face daily, along with the huge and growing need for stronger mental wellness support systems. The documentary focuses on a range of issues, including interpersonal relationships, the ability to focus in school or at work and life choices. Women and men who live in Philadelphia, Washington DC, Chicago and the Oakland area tell the story of what it's like living in survival mode, when their neighborhoods are overrun by violence, poverty and drugs. Moving Beyond Survival Mode searches for insights that help identify the causes for generational cycles of family dysfunction, feelings of abandonment and anger at an oppressive "system" that lead people to behaviors that have negative consequences-at both the individual and community level. The documentary also explores the barriers poor families face while trying to navigate the current mental healthcare system
