Schizophrenia: whether it’s the associations it conjures or the people it brings to mind, it is a word we all have a view on. How we perceive it – and how we treat people living with it – is at the core of how we understand mental health.

But what do we really know? How much time do we spend listening? Do we truly comprehend this complex and often contradictory diagnosis?

In This Book Will Change Your Mind About Mental Health Nathan Filer, mental health nurse and award-winning writer, takes us on a journey into the psychiatric wards he once worked on. He also invites us to spend time with world-leading experts and with some extraordinary people who share their own stories – true stories – about living with this strange and misunderstood condition.

Excellent, informative, accessible read I find it almost a shame that the title of this book refers specifically to so called ‘Schizophrenia’, when it is in fact a valuable read which applies to – I think – all areas of mental health difficulties.Jargon is explained, the tone is professional and approachable, with some humour and humbleness – making this book accessible to a whole range of readers.The thoughts, feelings, opinions and research of a wide range of professionals, those with lived experience, friends, family,…

A must read for everyone Not many books stand out as a “must read” but this is definitely one of them. A truly excellent summary of the state of things in our NHS mental health services.

The clarity, the depth, the lucidity. A truly GREAT author.
