Written off Mental Health Stigma and the Loss of Human Potential by Philip T Yanos. In a scholarly and compassionate analysis, Janos eloquently documents the stigma of mental illness, which is most likely to stigmatize, on the heavy toll of stigma on people with psychiatric conditions and their families. And yet, a solid foundation for hope is also laid through the discussion of recent developments in peer support and treatment that have the promise of helping people with mental health challenges overcome the effects of stigma, reclaim a sense of worth in their own eyes, and that of society, and realize their true human potential. This should be required reading for all students, clinicians, researchers, and policymakers working in the mental health profession.
