Coming Out Proud program
Self-stigma is one of the egregious impacts of mental illness stigma, a diminished sense of self-esteem and self-efficacy leading to a “why try” effect in many people:  “why try get a regular job, someone like me doesn’t deserve it.”  Recently, innovative programs have emerged to challenge self-stigma, programs based in part on psychoeducation and cognitive reframing skills meant to challenge stigmatizing self-statements.  An interesting result has emerged out of research by our group that informs an alternative program for dealing with self-stigma: the Coming Out Proud program (COPp).  Research shows those who have disclosed aspects of their mental illness frequently report a sense of personal empowerment that enhances self-esteem and promotes confidence to seek and achieve individual goals.  In this light, a group of people with lived experience and stigma researchers developed the Coming Out Proud program, now being used in beta research in the United States, Europe, Australia, and China.  The Coming Out Proud program is a step-by-step program meant to guide people who are uncertain about whether or not to disclose their mental illness history.  The Coming Out Proud program is divided into three lessons:
1. Considering the pros and cons of disclosing;
2. There are different ways to disclose; and
3. Telling your story.
A workbook has been written as a companion to this manual (Coming Out Proud: To Eliminate the Stigma of Mental Illness – Workbook).  The workbook briefly summarizes the key points of each lesson, and also provides useful exercises that help participants to make decisions as well as implement actions surrounding/related to coming out.
