Editorial Reviews

Review


"Hinshaw's interesting and valuable collection of narratives will appeal to a variety of audiences, including academics who are interested in understanding the phenomenology of mental illness, its treatment, and its socio-institutional administration, government officials developing health care policy, and people who live close to mental illness."--Metapsychology Online Reviews


"The sincere, personal accounts of mental illness disclosed in this book
stand in stark contrast to the stereotypes so often depicted in other media, particularly the popular press. Told from the perspective of mental health professionals, who have had
personal and family experiences with mental illness, these compelling stories shed light on the stigma that pervades our culture and shapes the attitudes of many, including some who work in the mental health field....This book carries with it the capacity for fostering a new culture of openness and disclosure in the mental health field, and should be read by veterans and newcomers alike."--Psychiatric Rehabilitation Journal

This is a fantastic book. Dr. Borelli's chapter on sibling mental illness is especially noteworthy. It is (at once) gripping, frightening, and illuminating. It is also extraordinarily brave.

This is the most powerful book I have read on stigma in mental illness. The power of personal disclosure by professionals who work in the field was stirring. I have worked in this field for over for 38 years and I was amazed at how much it affected me. I had to take my time to read each story. Sometimes , I had to take a break because it was so intense. But I always went back to find out the endof the story. It is difficult to learn emotionally from cognitive formats, but I learned a lot from my own responses. Profound!
