Format: Hardcover
Few books combine serious academic thinking with intimate personal feelings. This one does and Marjorie Baldwin writes well. She covers a large number of issues involved with serious mental illness (SMI) in general and schizophrenia in particular and tells a detailed personal story about her son and herself. It is a unique and valuable book. The author is an academic, the bibliography is a very academic one with almost no trade books.

I create and maintain educational websites, Midwest Independent Research. I have one on mental health, mwir-mentalhealth.blogspot com.

Although much of this book reads like a research paper, I found the personal experiences of the author well written and very compelling. I was happy that there are success stories now when managing mental illness. Things have improved since my step-son ended his life at age 33. The step-by-step action plan for securing gainful employment and a sense of self-worth are right-on. I appreciated the glowing recommendation for Phoenix Dream Center, an organization that I'll place on my donation list. Anyone dealing with schizophrenia in the family would find a lot to learn and ponder in this book.

Excellent description of living with a loved one with schizophrenia from two persepectives: 1) A mother; and 2) A health economist. This combination makes it more than a simple (yet valid) story of how a family comes together to overcome this challenge because it also incorporates the impact of the disease on the health system. A must read for those interested in moving the mental health system forward.

Must reading for all policy makers. Best book on serious mental illness that I have ever read, and I read all I can find. Dr. Baldwin has unsurpassed insight and knowledge about the subject as well as better recommendations and solutions than are presently found in this country. How can we get our policy makers to read this book?
