Description - Users and Abusers of Psychiatry by Lucy Johnstone

Using real-life examples and her own experience as a clinical psychologist, the author of this book argues that the traditional system of treating mental illness can often exacerbate people's original difficulties leaving them powerless, disabled and distressed. In this revised and updated second edition, she draws on a range of evidence to present a very different understanding of psychiatric breakdown than those presented in standard medical textbooks.
