Poems from the Madhouse by Sandy Jeffs

Book Description

This powerful collection of poems intrigues readers of all ages, but has a strong resonance for teenagers. Young people are at a particular risk of mental illness, and are still developing their ideas about people and the world around them. Consequently this new edition includes an introduction by Sandy talking about the onset of her illness, and the possible links between schizophrenia and recreational drug use.
