Psychosis in the Family

Author(s): Janet Love

Psychoses

"Psychosis in the Family" is a book written not just by a professional trans personal psychotherapist but by someone who has walked the heart rending path and experienced the psychological trauma of loving someone in psychosis; psychosis which still remains the 'greatest taboo' in society today, together with its implicit diagnosis of a 'lifelong sentence of medication' and 'no cure.' The 21st century has seen a significant shift amongst us to take more responsibility for our illnesses through being able to access unlimited information on diagnoses and treatments through the Internet.To date, severe mental illness has been a particularly closed book, with only psychiatrists and mental health professionals professing to know its secrets and mysteries. In particular, psychosis has been a subject which for centuries has lain behind the locked doors of the experts just as the severely mentally ill have been hidden away from the public eye in locked wards.This book is in the main a personal and moving narrative of a mother looking to help her son avoid a lifelong sentence of medication whilst trying to research holistic resources and alternative approaches for treatment whilst negotiating the vagaries of the current mental health system.
