Join ISPS-US for our upcoming webinar

Beating the Stigma of “Psychosis”

Tuesday, June 14th, 2022. 12pm-1:30pm (Eastern)

The stigma of “mental illness” can be as big a barrier to the achievement of an individual’s goals as the symptoms and potential disabilities associated with psychosis and extreme states. This presentation will distinguish harm wrought by public versus self stigma. Dr. Corrigan will review the research on outcomes of stigma intervention, perhaps surprisingly showing the limitations of education, and instead resting on the efficacy of contact-based experiences.

Patrick Corrigan

Patrick Corrigan is Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Prior to that, Corrigan was Professor of Psychiatry and Executive Director of the University of Chicago Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation. 

Corrigan has worked most of his 30-year career in providing and evaluating services for people with psychiatric disabilities with special focus on the impact of health equity. Realizing that the benefits of psychiatric services are limited by stigma, he has spent the past two decades broadening his research to the prejudice and discrimination of mental illness. His work has been supported by NIH and PCORI for most of that time to, among other things, develop and lead the National Consortium on Stigma and Empowerment (www.NCSE1.org). This led to development of the Honest, Open, Proud program to erase the stigma of mental illness (www.honestopenproudprogram.org). 

Corrigan also extended his research to mental health AND social determinants (e.g., ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, and age) and corresponding social disadvantage related to poverty, criminal justice involvement, and immigration concerns resulting in the Chicago Health Disparities Center (www.chicagohealthdisparities.org). 

Corrigan has authored more than 450 journal articles and 20 books. He is also editor of Stigma and Health, an APA journal.
