5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and Progressive Mental Heatlh Collection, 10 Mar 2013
This review is from: Madness Contested: Power and Practice (Paperback)
Excellent collection. Really well written and structured. It includes a wide range of mental health topics and different types of authors - nurses, academics, survivors, psychiatrists, service users and psychologists. It shows what's wrong with the current system and why it persists, as well as sharing ideas as how to move forward. Lots of food for thought. I would recommend it to all involved in mental health and those concerned with how we treat each other; it should be essential reading for all training to become a mental health professional. The book includes a number of examples of how we could develop mental health services. For example, Leeds Survivor Led Crisis Service is inspiring; why aren't there more services like this?

5.0 out of 5 stars Madness definitely contested, 8 April 2013
This review is from: Madness Contested: Power and Practice (Paperback)
Brilliant book for anyone interested in psychology & mental health. It questions the current system by highlighting its flaws and offers new ideas and practises for moving forward! It is very well written and written in such a way that even peoplr not in this proffession like me or you can understand the system and how it affects people we may know or love. A real eye opener and I hope that this is the start of many books to follow! Well worth what I paid for it! :-)
