One of the most effective ways to erase stigma is by people with lived experience telling their stories of recovery: COMING OUT. Being in the closet with mental health experiences often leads to shame. COMING OUT replaces shame with a sense of authority and empowerment. COMING OUT promotes the fact that people with even the most serious of mental illnesses recover and do so by actively choosing their goals. This is a book about people COMING OUT, standing up and proudly hailing their life journey, highlighting challenges and accomplishments in the process.

Review:

Patrick Corrigan and his fellow authors courageously share their experiences of living with mental illness and proudly embrace their recovery journeys. Their stories of struggle and triumph over adversity change the conversation about mental illness from disability to ability, accomplishment, strength and resilience. Coming Out Proud is a seminal work that confronts stigma head on and replaces it with acceptance and inclusion. --Former U.S. First Lady Rosalynn Carter
