    I picked this book up happenstance on spotting its title in the library - on flicking through excerpts, I was immediately intrigued. My background is as a medical student, and whilst I don't feel that this is necessarily required reading, I would certainly prescribe it - because it challenges you to think about mental health elastically. A typical medical education does not address the diversity of the mental health experience, which one might consider a prerequisite for any health professional w I picked this book up happenstance on spotting its title in the library - on flicking through excerpts, I was immediately intrigued. My background is as a medical student, and whilst I don't feel that this is necessarily required reading, I would certainly prescribe it - because it challenges you to think about mental health elastically. A typical medical education does not address the diversity of the mental health experience, which one might consider a prerequisite for any health professional whose quotidian workload entails their patients' and their families' crises, and reads such as this one help address the deficit. The collection of essays scrutinises mental health from a wide angles of professional perspectives - sociological, economic, psychiatric - as well as those of the patients themselves. I particularly found the essays which dealt with culturally specific psychiatric approaches fascinating reads in terms of symptom interpretation, diagnosis, and treatment. The collection, however, did not particularly address issues of drug and alcohol dependence as coping mechanisms. Great and thought-provoking read... would definitely recommend.
