'This book is a delight to read. By one of our leading international psychiatrists, it brings both wisdom and knowledge to bear on many key issues that the mental health movement currently faces ... this is a book to savour: it is enjoyable as a straight read ... but it is also a book for the bedside, to dip into from time to time ... this book is contemporary and inspiring, challenging psychiatrists to become more involved with the wider contextual milieu in which we operate.' British Journal of Psychiatry 'This book dignifies those who struggle with illness or care in families.' Psychology and Psychiatry
