Here is an article I co-authored with Coni Kalinowski, M.D. on Mentalism. Mentalism is a term describing discrimination by professionals (and others) directed towards people who have been psychiatrically labeled. This article is in both MS Word (.doc) and Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format. It's rather long and dense (loaded with great information but fairly concentrated). If you have difficulty following along with this article then I recommend that you check out my slide show based on this article. The slide show is an easier way of grasping these concepts and presenting them to others.
