Patrick Corrigan is Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Prior to that, Corrigan was Professor of Psychiatry and Executive Director of the Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation at the University of Chicago. Corrigan is a licensed clinical psychologist setting up and providing services for people with serious mental illnesses and their families for more than 30 years. Corrigan has been principal investigator of federally funded studies on rehabilitation and consumer operated services. Twelve years ago, he became principal investigator of the Chicago Consortium for Stigma Research, the only NIMH-funded research center examining the stigma of mental illness. The Chicago Consortium evolved into the National Consortium on Stigma and Empowerment (NCSE) also supported by NIMH. Central to NCSE is the Center on Adherence and Self-Determination (CASD) supported as a developing center in services research by NIMH. Located at IIT, CASD includes co-principal investigators from Yale, the University of Pennsylvania, Temple and Rutgers. One recent study supported by NIAAA, NIMH, and The Fogarty Center examined the stigma of mental illness endorsed by employers in Beijing, Chicago, and Hong Kong. In 2013, Corrigan took the helm of an NIH-funded grant on peer navigators meant to enhance the integrated care need of African Americans with mental illness who are homeless. Corrigan is a prolific researcher having authored or edited twelve books and more than 300 papers. He is editor of the American Journal of Psychiatric Rehabilitation.
