Summary
  • "How have individuals with mental illness been treated historically and what are their experiences today? This book investigates the historical and contemporary forms of discrimination faced by those with mental illness. Provides a valuable resource for researching the hot topic of discrimination and injustice against a group of individuals--one that is often overlooked by society as well as by reference books. Supplies annotated primary sources that will serve to improve readers' research and critical reasoning skills. Examines the role the media has played in discriminatory practices towards mental illness. Explores several contemporary issues related to mental illness--including diversity, comorbidity, homelessness, veterans, and the criminal justice system--and their intersection with discrimination"--
  • "This book is about discrimination against persons with mental illness. There is a great deal of awareness within the last few years about the impact discrimination can have on so many aspects of individuals' functioning including their mental health. A scan of the current literature yields numerous research articles, a number of which document connections between poor mental health outcomes and discrimination, across diverse groups. There is thus little argument that there is an association between discrimination and impaired mental health in the general population. However, for those who are already struggling with a mental disorder, does discrimination create an even harsher burden with which they must survive on a daily basis? This book is important as it takes a look at how discrimination has been pervasive in almost every aspect of the lives of persons with mental illness for more than two centuries. From the private madhouses of the 18th century British, to the large 20th century farm colonies in the US, persons with mental illness have been viewed pejoratively, and have encountered discrimination even from those who have been entrusted with their care"--
