It could be argued that a more sensitive appreciation of the total reality of the ?madness experience?, of the interior perceptions, feelings and thoughts, and the exterior reactions based on them, is the single most important development that could improve the quality of life of those diagnosed mentally ill. This book aims to offer just that, presenting a number of personal experiences and providing an alternative to the received wisdom that mental illness is an affliction, an inevitably demoralising experience, which all patients would avoid if they could.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Experience of Madness May 17 2000
By Sally Clay - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book contains chapters written by mental health consumer/survivors, edited and discussed by distinguished advocates in the field of psychiatric nursing. All of the survivors eloquently describe their personal experience with madness and with institutional treatment sometimes more damaging that the madness itself. They present experiences of madness from the inside, the meaning these experiences hold for them, and the various and individual journeys each has taken in recovery and personal growth. Readers will find here descriptions of spiritual aspects of madness as well as accounts of recovery from madness through the "peer principle" of helping ourselves and others. Chapters were written by psychiatric survivors from Great Britain, the United States, and Australia. Authors from the United States include Kate Millett, Judi Chamberlin, Dan Fisher, and Sally Clay (myself).
