In this talk, Dr. Hinshaw first defines stigma and discusses reasons for the puzzling persistence of stigma directed toward mental illness, despite far greater knowledge of mental disorders than half a century ago. He then discusses the concept of “courtesy stigma,” a term first denoting the strong stigma directed toward family members of those with mental disorders (especially the case for ADHD). Third, he presents his own family’s experiences with serious mental disorder, Stephen Hinshaw including doctor’s orders for his parents never to discuss such issues with their children.
