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.
