Description du produit

Revue de presse

For those interested in mental health policy on a global perspective, this book is essential. For all of us with the nagging sense that life for our patients is even harder than it needs to be, this book provides ample evidence that our suspicions are both shared and justified. In the end, Shunned is a politcally thoughtful and measured call to arms. The time is now. (Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry)

...an important contribution to the literature in an area of concern that is likely to receive increasing attention. s

Once a person is labelled a mentally ill, their decision-making ability is called into question and protests against treatments are either discredited or labelled as one more symptom of mental illness. ... The solution is not seen as lessening stigma but as ensuring people labelled as mentally ill retain the right as citizens to challenge the label and their treatment as well as the right to retain basic control over their lives Perhaps from this recognition, a civil rights movement may grow, dedicated to the liberation of people with mental illness from being marginalised, from being excluded and from being shunned. (BMA Medical Book Competition 2007)

...an excellent text that should be pat of required reading for all social and health care professionals. Shunned is overflowing with research, quotes, and other material that make it an invaluable resource to have on the bookshelf. (British Journal of Social Work)

...one of the most wide-ranging examinations of stigma in print...Gathering together personal stories with published evidence from every continent about people's experience of discrimination, Thornicroft builds a three-dimensional picture of the impact of ignorance, prejudice and discrimination on every aspect of the daily lives of people with mental health problems. (Mental Health Today)

Anyone treating people with psychiatric conditions should read this book to provide a greater understanding of the challeneges those with mental illness face day after day. (Doody's Notes)

Présentation de l'éditeur

People with mental illness commonly describe the stigma and discrimination they face as being worse than their main condition. Discrimination can pervade every part of their daily life - their personal life, working life, sense of citizenship, their ability to maintain even a basic standard of living. Though things have certainly improved in the past 50 years, discrimination against the mentally ill is still a major problem throughout the world. It can manifest itself in subtle ways, such as the terminology used to describe the person or their illness, or in more obvious ways - by the way the mentally ill might be treated and deprived of basic human rights. Should we just accept such discrimination as deeply rooted and resistant to change, or is this something that we can collectively change if we understand and commit ourselves to tackling the problem? Shunned presents clearly for a wide readership information about the nature and severity of discrimination against people with mental illness and what can be done to reduce this. The book features many quotations from people with mental illness showing how this has affected their home, personal, social, and working life. After showing, both from personal accounts and from a thorough review of the literature, the nature of discrimination, the book sets out a clear manifesto for change. Written by a leading figure in mental health in a lively and accessible manner, the book presents a fascinating and humane portrayal of the problem of stigma and discrimination, and shows how we can work to reduce it.
