Families, Mental Illness, and Stigma: The New Frontier for Human Rights


The public knows more facts about depression, PTSD, autism, ADHD, and other mental/developmental disabilities than ever before, but public attitudes have not fundamentally shifted over the past 100 years.  I became interested in clinical and developmental psychology as the result of my family experiences, growing up in a home with serious mental illness--particularly my father's severe, episodic bipolar disorder, misdiagnosed since his teenage years.  Covering themes from my latest book, "Another Kind of Madness: A Journey through the Stigma and Hope of Mental Illness," I discuss shame, stigma, and the power of communicating openly about the mental disorders that touch most families, in order to humanize the entire topic.

Are you excited about Psychology and eager to assist your peers? Do you have an interest in Counseling or Student Affairs?


Psychology Peer Advising is a great program to get involved in! We are looking for students who are very enthusiastic about the major and, are passionate about helping our students be successful during their time at UC Berkeley. Peer advisors provide the perspective of an upper-division student and share their strategies for academic success and knowledge of department resources and programs. Besides advising, you will also participate in events like CalDay, Major Madness, and Psych Commencement Ceremony.
