Rice, Elizabeth PhD, RN
Women diagnosed with severe mental illness experience twice the rates of violence compared with women without mental illness. Despite awareness of violence, mental healthcare providers feel powerless to combat the problem. This article synthesizes 2 previous interpretive studies that examined violence perpetrated against women diagnosed with schizophrenia. This synthesis critically examines the perspectives of women who experience violence and schizophrenia and case managers who care for them. Stigma was an overarching theme in participants' stories but each group differed in its understanding of how stigma impacted women's lives. This disconnection perpetuates stigma and allows violence to remain invisible.
