Read full description of the books:



In Norah Vincent's acclaimed first book she described how she spent eighteen months disguised as a man, an experience that ended on a locked ward in a psychiatric hospital. She left determined to learn more about the world of psychiatry and to examine whether different mental institutions would offer different solutions to their patients, but rather than researching it as a journalist she chose to experience it as a patient.

Her journey begins in a huge inner-city hospital, before moving to the calming green carpet of St Lukes where patients are offered a room of their own and a regular jog in the park. From there she moves to Mobius, and a Buddhist-inspired brand of healing where she is forced to swim through West Coast psychobabble to some unexpected conclusions. The result is a fearless and unprecedented view of mental health care - from the inside out.

Reviews of the Voluntary Madness: My Year Lost and Found in the Loony Bin


LEO

A charming book, a lot more!

MATTHEW

This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.

NIAMH

There are clear drawbacks

THEODORE

An interesting book that says more than you can fit

MAISIE

Interesting, exciting story.
