The Mark of Shame

Stigma of Mental Illness and an Agenda for Change

Stephen P. Hinshaw

  • The first sole-authored book to feature the stigmatization of mental illness.
  • A unique synthesis, it blends historical analysis; reviews of theories from social psychology, sociology, and evolutionary psychology; summaries of empirical research; analysis of everyday culture (language, laws and policies, personal narratives); and systematic coverage of what we can all do to help overcome the stigma that so often attends to mental disorder.
  • It is simultaneously rigorous and compassionate, scientific and humanistic, analytical and action-oriented.
