Mark uses his experience as a mental health service user to explore the backlash against traditional psychiatry and its relationships to politics, religion, the survivor movement and society as a whole. Ellerbys writing is informative and incisive but never patronising. In introducing and exploring this topic he is doing us all a service- this is an important and vocal movement which needs to be understood. About the AuthorMy biographical history is very much dominated by schizophrenia which began at age 21. I had just graduated from university and was starting a PhD. course in political philosophy. I had to give up my PhD. after a five year struggle with the illness due to a lack of information to hand about what hearing voices actually is.
