MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Severe mental illness afflicts many men and women throughout their lives, often without warning, and almost always with devastating results. This book takes a look at psychosis, and contends that although the delusions and hallucinations of the psychotic person are misguided and confused, they are understandable when viewed in the context of a person's life. Using real life examples, Capps covers the prevalence of psychotic illness; the long-range effects of deinstitutionalization on mentally ill persons, their families, and their communities; family members' responses to their mentally ill relative; rehabilitation and prevention approaches and methods; the nature of delusions and hallucinations; the delusional belief that one is someone else; and the realization of mental stability.

Introduction 1. The Epidemic of Mental Illness 2. The Failure of Deinstitutionalization 3. The Effects of Mental Illness on Family Members 4. The Prevention of Mental Illness 5. John Nash: Acute Identity Confusion 6. John Nash: The Goal of Mental Equilibrium Epilogue
