As a person who has experienced, and observed in several others people, severe emotional/mental distress this book offers encouragement and inspiration to sufferers, carers and professionals alike as to how there is a need to de-emedicalise the very real causes which lead to acute levels of distress, it points us towards the political struggle required to work towards avoiding stigmatising diagnosis, prognosis and potentially harmful treatments.

An excellent collection of chapters that call for a far more human, democratic and context driven understanding of distress. A fine collection for all interesting in developing and progressing mental health services. Highly recommended. Impressive

Psychiatric drugs do have a place in mental health care but they are not magic bullets and may even cause more damage than than good. De-medicalizing Misery shows us another way to be with and treat mental illness rather than going down a medical route, a route that is rather over-eagerly championed by the pharmaceutical industry.

medicalising problems of living individualising them is very convenient for governments psychiatrists clinic psychologists internalise medicalise problems within indivual not unfair societies societies neo liberal agends makes for distress . these ""treatments" stop people coming together politically e.g forming new parties to change selfish greedy capitalism. drugs make millions for companies

Did not meet my expectations. Looking at the title i expected something totally different from what i got. Guess it is okay for extra reading not as a main text.
