I have these three sentences:
Throughout human history, mental illness has been stigmatized beyond belief. Individuals that have been diagnosed as mentally ill have been subject to social opposition. Stigma researchers from University of Chicago, Patrick W. Corrigan and Amy C. Watson, conclude these statements and believe that public and self-stigma both affect the society diagnosed with mental disorders.
Is it ok to use the term "conclude these statements" as in the third sentence above? I am asking this because that phrase doesn't seem accurate to me.
