Deconstructing Stigma in Mental Health Hardback
Edited by Brittany A. Canfield, Holly A. Cunningham
Part of the Advances in Psychology, Mental Health, and Behavioral Studies series
Stigma continues to play an integral role in the multifaceted issues facing mental health.
While identifying a clear operational definition of stigma has been a challenge in the field, the issues related to stigma grossly affect not only the mental health population but society as a whole. Deconstructing Stigma in Mental Health provides emerging research on issues related to stigma as a whole including ignorance, prejudice, and discrimination.
While highlighting issues such as stigma and its role in mental health and how stigma is perpetuated in society, this publication explores the historical context of stigma, current issues and resolutions through intersectional collaboration, and the deconstruction of mental health stigmas.
This book is a valuable resource for mental health administrators and clinicians, researchers, educators, policy makers, and psychology professionals seeking information on current mental health stigma trends.
