This chapter reviews the 14 key principles of the process of acceptance of mental illness among culturally diverse groups that emerged from the findings in this book. Each principle is accompanied by clinical recommendations for facilitating the process of acceptance of mental illness. Examples are provided as to how clinicians, peer specialists, and researchers might respond to issues of acceptance of mental illness to facilitate hope and recovery. A number of acceptance-related techniques and theories in clinical care are also discussed. To further understanding and promote the process of acceptance of mental illness among persons in recovery, areas of potential development for future research are reviewed. An “Acceptance of Mental Illness Checklist” with scoring information is provided to assess the dimensions of acceptance and barriers and facilitators among people with serious mental illness and to aid further clinical and research examination of this construct.
