This chapter covers intersectional stigma, the overlapping, multiple levels of stigma and discrimination faced by women of color with serious mental illness, particularly with regard to racism, mental illness stigma, and misogyny. This chapter contains several case narratives of women of color with serious mental illness in order to demonstrate the impact of compounded levels of discrimination on their lives. The strengths, resilience, spirituality, and empowerment manifested by women with serious mental illness in overcoming the challenges of mental illness, racism, sexism, and daily life are discussed. Clinical recommendations are provided to facilitate culturally competent care with this group. The chapter includes a clinical strategies list, discussion questions, activities, and a clinical worksheet (“Cultural Strengths and Stigma Worksheet”).
