Recovery Press is the publishing arm of the Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation, formerly at the University of Chicago, now affiliated with Northwestern University and housed at Evanston Northwestern Healthcare. It is the home of a well-known journal, Psychiatric Rehabilitation Skills, as well as the source of several books on rehabilitation practices and principles.

The Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation is a training and research program dedicated to persons with severe mental illness and to the development and investigation of rehabilitation strategies that facilitate their treatment goals.

Towards this end, Center faculty and staff train clinical staff as well as clinical leaders to implement user-friendly and effective rehabilitation programs, provide ongoing consultation for maintenance of those programs, and investigate the efficacy of various rehabilitation and staff training programs. In addition, Center faculty are leading experts on the stigma of mental illness and effective programs for erasing it.

Don't Call Me Nuts! addresses one of the pressing issues in psychiatry today, indeed in the larger scope of civil rights in society - the stigma of mental illness. In its 456 pages, Corrigan and Lundin explore all facets of the stigma which persons with mental illnesses face. Don't Call Me Nuts! is both a valuable resource, a history lesson, and a gaze into the future of a stigma-less community.

Don't Call Me Nuts! is a handbook for persons with mental illness. In its pages are discussions about dealing with self?stigma, knowing when or whether to disclose a mental illness, seven ways to foster personal empowerment, and legal and political remedies. From the point of view of impacting society, Don't Call Me Nuts! explores the public's reaction to stigma through the methods of contact, education, or protest. It's a must-have for your library.
