From Psychiatric Patient to Citizen : Overcoming Discrimination and Stigma Paperback
by Liz Sayce
This text proposes new theoretical models and practical strategies for tackling the widespread social exclusion faced by people diagnosed mentally ill.
Based on research in the US and UK, with reference to other international examples, it analyzes evidence of discrimination and the effectiveness of different remedies: disability discrimination law, work to reframe media and cultural images, grassroots inclusion programmes, and challenges to the "nimby" factor.
