About the Consortium

One of the greatest barriers to people in recovery is the stigma of mental illness.  Personal empowerment is one of the best ways to overcome the stigma.  The National Consortium on Stigma and Empowerment (NCSE) is a research group meant to promote recovery by understanding stigma and promoting empowerment.  The Consortium is located at the Illinois Institute of Technology with a collection of researchers at Yale University, the University of Pennsylvania, Rutgers University, Temple University, the University of Wisconsin, Illinois State University, and the University of Chicago.
