What precipitates mental breakdown? How do people experience such extremes & ndash; and how do they see others & rsquo; interpretations and interventions? Most important, how do people recover from these episodes and get their lives back? These are some of the questions addressed in this anthology of first-hand accounts of mental breakdown and recovery. Eleven very different stories together shed light on what triggers mental breakdown, what it is like to be & lsquo; mad & rsquo; , whether treatment helps and how people reclaim themselves and their lives. Based on tape-recorded interviews with people.
