4.0 out of 5 stars Insightful first-hand experiences written by sufferers, 9 Jun 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Speaking Our Minds: An Anthology (Paperback)
In his book, Jim Read presents a broad selection of first-hand accounts of many ditressing mental disorders. Autobiographical experiences, accompanied by experienced knowledge of psychiatry, help the reader to further understand the complexities of illnesses ranging from anxiety and depression to ADHD and anorexia nervosa. This is an indespensible manual for healthcare professionals and carers of those who suffer from mental afflictions. It is well laid-out and written in easily understandable - yet not patronising - language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insight into the world of service users and survivors, 21 April 2010

This review is from: Speaking Our Minds: An Anthology (Paperback)
This book is an excellent insight into the world of service users and survivors of the mental health system. It allows the reader to appreciate the issues that they have to overcome and to have a better understanding of the difficulties and prejudices that they have to deal with. Hopefully the reader will get an overview of the changes that need to be made through government policies, and the NHS. Excellent read and good background reading for students.

5.0 out of 5 stars Speaking our minds: an anthology, 30 April 2011

This review is from: Speaking Our Minds: An Anthology (Paperback)
I started reading this book in a high street bookshop but the price was prohibitive. I found it at a much lower and affordable price on Amazon. The book is excellent for my studies as a psychiatric nurse, and gives honest and detailed accounts of mental health problems from the service user's perspective - too many books on psychiatry are written from the practitioner's viewpoint. So, an excellent book for any reader!
