A Memoir of My Daughter’s Struggle With Bipolar Disorder and the Mental Healthcare System Thea Esperanza Amidov
When the author’s daughter was involuntarily committed to a psychiatric ward following a suicide attempt, early hope turned to disillusionment. The resulting struggle “unfolds like a novel and yet is written affectingly with impressive objectivity…both wise and philosophically rigorous….”(Kirkus Review) in a way that will both inform and emotionally move the reader. Final chapters offer research-based debate on involuntary commitment and alternative treatment approaches. 1978489528 • Paper, $19.00, eBook, $4.99 360 Pages • Memoir/Mental Illness Available at Amazon.
