Schizophrenia - A Father's Story: A Father’s Struggle Through The Development Of His Son's Paranoid Schizophrenia - Who Cares?

Blackbird Digital Books #ad - I couldn't stop reading. Goodreadsthe author of the original bestselling titles the Rough Guide To France and The Rough Guide to Paris tells the tragic, moving story of his son's – and thus his own – 20-year struggle with schizophrenia. A piercing look into darkest shadows not often explored with such intense scrutiny and love.

His story includes his dealings with the mental health care services, “a pretty shameful record of incompetence, whom he has not spared – “for in their devotion to the sloppy, evasive language of political correctness, buck-passing and lack of communication and co-ordination” and the mental health charities, they have dangerously underplayed the seriousness of real mental illness like schizophrenia”.

A riveting read, a proper page-turner. We could do better than this. Nina bawden, novelist, author of The Birds on the Trees. He is a talented artist, who has kindly contributed one of his images for us to use as the cover of this book. I would recommend this book for care coordinators and those interested in more responsive and engaged services.
