This review is from: Doctoring the Mind: Why psychiatric treatments fail (Paperback)
I wanted to learn more about what lies behind the medical model (professional) front of mental illness and this book demystifies so much of that. I found it a fascinating and insightful read in to what is a fascinating topic - our mental health. A ground breaking approach into informing people about mental illness and telling what goes on behind the wall of 'the mental health care system - history and present.' I'm so glad I read this book so many of my assumptions and beliefs (ignorance) about the mental health system were wiped out by this most profound book. Now I have a far greater and well needed understanding of how the system 'is' I am able to make much more informed and knowledge based decisions about my relatives health with a far clearer understanding and confidence in myself because of what I have learned from this book.
