Do They Have a Pill for That?: A Psychologist’s Story


Who would fathom little eight-year-old Pedee hanging himself? Why bring a pig to a counseling session? How could a stepfather burn his stepson? In Do They Have a Pill for That?, author T.L. Shull takes a walk through the mental health profession from the beginning to the end, as seen through a psychologist’s eyes who has practiced for thirty years. Experience the life stories of patients who struggle with stigma and their insurance companies whose bottom line is to cut costs, funding that is limited by state and governmental agencies regarding services of mental health. He shares client stories of people of all ages and all walks of life, from the rich and famous to the poor and downtrodden, illustrating that no one is immune from mental health issues or addictions. The cases, modified to protect identity, call attention to the fact that many people have, at one time or another, experienced a mental health issue or some form of regression to an unhealthy state. In Do They Have a Pill for That? Shull sheds light on the ebb and flow of the tides with the mentally ill and the social barriers they face. He brings about conscientious thought and encourages change in the way mental health issues are perceived in this country and how services are provided.
