#071 - The Stigma Effect (Prof. Patrick Corrigan)
12.19.2018 - By Renegade Ape - Psychology, Philosophy, and the Overton Wasteland
Prof. Patrick Corrigan joins us to revisit the topic of stigma.
In today's episode we explore the origins of stigma and the various ways it tends to manifest, whether there is any truth in the stereotypes of people with mental illness being dangerous and/or incompetent, examples of anti-stigma campaigns that are either ineffective or counterproductive and some more effective alternatives, and why mental health professionals should step aside and allow people with lived experience to lead the charge against stigma.
