Users and Abusers of Psychiatry is a radically different, critical account of the day-to-day practice of psychiatry. Using real-life examples and her own experience as a clinical psychologist, Lucy Johnstone argues that the traditional way of treating mental illness can often exacerbate people's original difficulties leaving them powerless, disabled and distressed. In this completely revised and updated second edition, she draws on a range of evidence to present a very different understanding of psychiatric breakdown than that found in standard medical textbooks. Users and Abusers of Psychiatry is a challenging but ultimately inspiring read for all who are involved in mental health - whether as professionals, students, service users, relatives or interested lay people.

This is a concise, authoritative review of what is important in the understanding and management of the distressing condition of schizophrenia. Although schizophrenia has been recognized for 100 years, our knowledge of its cause, and thus our approach to its treatment, has been limited. Today, thanks, largely to new genetic and brain imaging techniques, our understanding of the symptoms and cognitive deficits is increasing, so illuminating the underlying causes of schizophrenia. New drug and non-drug treatments are becoming avilable, allowing the first real advances in treatment in 30 years.
