Patrick Corrigan is Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the Illinois Institute of Technology. Prior to this, Corrigan was professor of Psychiatry and Executive Director of the Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation at the University of Chicago, being there for 14 years. Corrigan has been principal investigator of federally funded studies on rehabilitation, the stigma of mental illness, and consumer operated services. Ten 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. More recently, the Chicago Consortium evolved into the National Consortium on Stigma and Empowerment (NCSE), supported by NIMH as a developing center in services research. Centered at IIT, NCSE includes co-principal investigators from Yale, the University of Pennsylvania, 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 the last few years, Corrigan has partnered with colleagues from the Department for Veteran Affairs and Department of Defense to develop and evaluate anti-stigma programs meant to help soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan seek out services for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder when needed. Corrigan is a prolific researcher having published eleven books and more than 250 papers. He is Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Psychiatric Rehabilitation.
