Perceived stigma in probationers with mental disorder in traditional and specialty mental health probation agencies

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Offenders with mental disorder are more likely to “fail” than non-disordered offenders when supervised in the community. Although persons with mental disorder are highly stigmatized, the experience and effect of this stigma has yet to be studied in the context of community corrections. This research examines the perception of mental illness stigma among probationers with mental disorder (PMDs) at a specialty mental health probation agency and a traditional probation agency. PMDs at the specialty site reported significantly more mental illness stigma and this stigma predicted treatment non-adherence and failure to report to the probation officer, even after controlling for differences in PMDs by site.
