Users and Abusers of Psychiatry
(2nd Edition - published in 2000)
By: Lucy Johnstone
In this second edition, she draws on a range of evidence to present a very different understanding of psychiatric breakdown than that found in standard medical textbooks. This book is a challenging but ultimately inspiring read for all who are involved in mental health - whether as professionals, students, service users, relatives or interested lay people.

(published in 2014)
