From the Mental Patient to the Person by Peter Barham

Book Description

The aim of contemporary mental health policy is to enable people who have had a severe mental illness to lead relatively independent lives in the community, rather than be sequestered permanently in the large mental hospitals. In recent years plans to hasten the closure of many of these hospitals have become controversial and generated sharp debate about community care. From the Mental Patient to the Person contributes to this debate through an exploration of the experiences of a group of people with a history of schizophrenic illness, who are living in the community.

Forgotten Lunatics of the Great War by Peter Barham Forgotten Lunatics of the Great War, Paperback (February 2007)

Draws on reports from the front lines, case histories, personal letters, and war pensions files to trace the lives and fortunes of a large cast of ex-servicemen who suffered mental breakdowns. This book describes their confinements to asylums, the reactions of families to their relatives' plight, the turmoil when they returned home, and more.

Invisible Girl by Peter Barham Invisible Girl, Paperback (August 2006)

A few years after packing for London, teenager Debbie Barham was writing the funniest lines for the top names in British comedy. But her genius belied a darker, destructive side that slowly span out of control. By 26 she had died of anorexia. This powerful memoir is her father's search to understand his daughter and make sense of her troubled end.
