Editorial Reviews

?More polished than many edited conference proceedings, this book provides a unique historical perspective, as revealed through the personal accounts of individuals who have grappled with imperfect mental health systems. Especially engaging are several chapters by psychologists who are also family members and another by a psychologist who has a diagnosis of schizophrenia. The creation of partnerships among psychologists, mental health consumers, and families is long overdue. This book is worth reading for this reason.?-Contemporary Psychology
