Brave, Important, Unique,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Psychiatric Tales (Hardcover)
This book is brave, important and unique. In an accessible and intelligent style, it gives an insight into an area of our society which is little explored; little represented in contemporary film, literature and documentary. I think it could be a valuable resource for anyone wanting to know more about the experience of mental illness, and unpicks the complex subject in a digestible way. Having suffered from psychosis myself, I can relate to many things in the book and feel it is brave to portray these issues in such clarity. Interesting section of self harm as a coping mechanism - it made me ask the question, what purpose do the highs and lows of mania and delusions of psychosis serve for the person experiencing them? Thank you for a brave, intelligent book.
