Supporting mental health disclosure decisions: the Honest, Open, Proud programme

  • Katrina Scior (a1), Nicolas Rüsch (a2), Chris White (a3) and Patrick W. Corrigan (a4)

Supporting them in making disclosure decisions can potentially improve well-being, reduce self-stigma and support recovery processes. In this editorial we discuss the case for interventions designed for this purpose and present one prominent programme: Honest, Open, Proud.
