This review is from: The Last Asylum: A Memoir of Madness in our Times (Hardcover)
This book poses questions about our treatment of the mentally ill in society. Have we become more enlightened in our "care in the community" times or did closing the asylums rob sufferers of a refuge and resource? I did find the details of the writers own journey through psychotherapy a bit self indulgent but she had much of value to share in regard to the attitudes and values in the not too distant past.
