This book is a collection of writings on how society has stigmatized mentally ill persons, their families, and their caregivers. First-hand accounts poignantly portray what it is like to be the victim of stigma and mental illness. Stigma and Mental Illness also presents historical, societal, and institutional viewpoints that underscore the devastating effects of stigma.

Doctors Fink and Tasman have utilized the anthology structure to permit experts in a large number of stigma's aspects to present their worthy contributions to the book. There is something here for everyone. Family members stand to gain as much as professionals do from reading it.... the information is both high caliber and up to date. * Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal *
Although slender in length, the scope of their book is encyclopedic... [T]here is an admirable (and all too rare) mix of psychiatric and psychological orientations among chapter authors. Fink and Tasman clearly succeed in documenting their thesis that 'stigma is... an insidious problem that is destructive to families, mentally ill patients, and the profession of psychiatry'. They have produced a valuable resource on a complex and very important subject. * Contemporary Psychology *
