eBook (PDF), 187 Pages
(1 Ratings)
Price: $7.50
Recommended by the World Fellowship for Schizophrenia and Allied Disorders this book has been described as “a goldmine of history and information” by a psychiatrist and as “a commendable book” by another psychiatrist. Written by an accomplished medical writer/journalist and family member, the book is designed to provide the reader with information on the causes, pathology, and best treatments for this debilitating disease. Considerable emphasis is placed on the problems of stigma both in society and from the medical profession and of our inadequate legislation that enables so many of the very sick to be denied proper treatment. Examples are given of countries that do have better legislation to ensure best treatment. The first 15 pages can be previewed using the arrows above the cover image to the left.

    "From the World Fellowship For Schizophrenia " Schizophrenia: Medicine's Mystery, Society's Shame by Marvin Ross, a medical writer and family member of a person with this disorder. A good book - worth a read. See:http://www.world-schizophrenia.org/resources/booklist.html

    "schizophrenia:medicine's mystery - society'shame" The description of the book says it well. It is also a welcome source of reliable information for those of us who sit on hospital or lhin family committees, or who attend family meetings with peers who either ignore schizophrenia, or want to appear so politically correct that they side with treatment deniers, the walking wounded or alternative treatment promoters. Fuller Torrey when he spoke in Toronto told us that sometimes we should not be afraid to be politically incorrect at times. Marvin Ross's latest book gives us the courage to do just that.
