Another Kind of Madness, The Stigma and Hope of Mental Illness

In Another Kind of Madness, Dr. Stephen Hinshaw,
Professor of Psychology at UC Berkeley and Vice Chair of Child and Adolescent Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at UCSF, explores the burden of living in a family “loaded” with mental illness and debunks the stigma behind it. He explains that

in today’s society, mental health problems still receive utter castigation—too often resulting in the loss of fundamental rights, including the inability to vote or run for office or automatic relinquishment of child custody. Through a poignant and moving family narrative, interlaced with shocking facts about how America and the world still view mental health conditions well into in the 21st century, Another Kind of Madness is a passionate call to arms regarding the importance of destigmatizing mental illness.

Dr. Stephen P. Hinshaw is an internationally recognized psychologist and expert on ADHD, whose contributions lie in the areas of developmental psychopathology and combating the stigma that still surrounds mental illness. He is also the author of the critically acclaimed book, ADHD, What Everyone Needs to Know and more than 325 scientific articles.
