Diagnosis: The Burden of Stigma in Help Seeking
Submit a must be 3-page paper that addresses the following: 
· Briefly explain Corrigan’s model of the stages of stigma and his recommendations and hierarchy about recovery. 
· Explain whether Delle’s experience follows that model. Use specific examples to argue your perspective. If you agree, identify which stage of recovery Delle is in. 
· Analyze Delle’s reports about his own experiences with both types of stigma. Provide specific examples, and in your analysis consider the following questions: 
o Does one type of stigma predominate in his talk? 
o Which of Delle’s personal values or beliefs were challenged by his internalizations about his own illness and help-seeking? 
o What strengths does he exhibit? 
o What was the primary benefit of his diagnosis? 
o Do you think that his experience would be different if his culture was different? Explain why or why not.
