This is a great look at the inner world of mental illness and how society has dealt with it through the years.  There are more mentally ill among us than ever before, but is that because of the medications that they’re on (or meant to be on, or perhaps misdiagnosed?) or does society just “catch and release”… or ignore more than before? 

This book raises a lot of questions, but gives a lot of answers.

I really enjoyed the work of author Robert Whitaker, and I agree that there seems to be an epidemic among us as far as mentally ill and how we treat them.

If you want to learn about the history and current status of the treatment of the mentally ill (and some of the medications that most of them are administered), this is a must read book for you!
