A haunting, deeply compassionate audiobook now revised with a new introduction. Mad in America raises important questions about our obligations to the mad, the meaning of "insanity,” and what we value most about the human mind.

Essential Reading to Understand Modern Psychiatry
How have the mentally ill been historically treated (and mistreated) by those who claimed to help? What has gone wrong with our current paradigm of care? Why are outcomes for the mentally ill worsening as psychiatric drug treatment is increasing? These critically important questions are answered by investigating the history of psychiatric treatment throughout America's past and then examining psychiatric and government literature to determine what has happened and why. A fascinating work of investigative research as well as essential reading/listening for anyone personally or professionally impacted by mental illness.
