Product description

Review

'it completely captivated me. I couldn’t put it down. What a compelling life story'

(Canadian Medical Association Journal Blog)

 'This is an exceptional book and should be read by many, both doctors and patients.'

(BJPsych Bulletin, British Journal of Psychiatry)

‘What is exceptional in this volume is the absolute sanity of its project. It is one of the least mad books on madness imaginable, and it most essentially promotes hopefulness in spite of its tales of real despair and disorientation.’

(BMJ Medical Humanities Journal Blog)

‘The Other Side of Silence is a must read for those experiencing or interested in depression, and all who are training and working in psychiatry'

(Fenella Lemonsky The Lancet Psychiatry)

‘a remarkable memoir.’

(The Morning Star)

‘I highly recommend The Other Side of Silence if you want a real account and contemporary understanding of depression, particularly with the supporting knowledge of a medical perspective.’

(Rosie Claverton Blog)

‘I really feel books like ‘The Other Side of Silence’ help demystify mental health…  I always recommend such books to new staff as a “way in” to understanding mental health and mental illness. We now have another book on the shelf to help us open up conversations about “madness”.’

(Vanessa Pinfold, Research Director at the McPin Foundation)

‘A brave piece of writing’

(Purple Persuasion Blog)

 ‘Linda is a brave and brilliant woman’   

(Kate Figes, Books Editor, YOU Magazine)

Review

People who have been depressed, or lived with depression in the family, will recognise the self-doubt, the gnawing anxiety and the brave public face, though not all reach the self-acceptance that she finally manages. Linda Gask has achieved something unusual: a book about depression that is both personal and scientifically sound.

(Louis Appelby,Former Director of Mental Health in England)
Brave, bold and poignant – but above all a first in bringing together the intricate web and weave of being simultaneously a doctor, a patient and an academic.

(Professor Dame Susan Bailey, Royal College of Psychiatrists)
Honest, vivid, powerful… anyone who has struggled with what are called ‘common mental health problems’ will identify with this book.

(Carolyn Chew-Graham, GP and Professor of General Practice Research, University of Keele)
