Overview

Recovery from Schizophrenia, from its first publication, was acclaimed as a work of major importance. It demonstrated convincingly, but controversially, how political, economic and labour market forces shape social responses to the mentally ill, mould psychiatric treatment philosophy, and influence the onset and course of one of the most common forms of mental illness.

In this revised and updated third edition, Dr Warner analyses the latest research to extend the conclusions of the original work and tells us whether conditions and outcomes for people with schizophrenia are getting better or worse for people in Britain and America in recent years. In addition, he
* critiques recent approaches to preventing the occurrence of schizophrenia
* suggests innovative strategies for advancing the economic situation of people with mental illness
* describes the latest advances in the rehabilitation of people with schizophrenia
* provides a guide on how to combat the stigma of mental illness at local and national level.

Recovery from Schizophrenia's radical analysis of the factors affecting the outcome of schizophrenia is essential reading for all psychiatrists, mental health professional, mental health advocates, social workers, rehabilitation personnel, and psychologists.

Discusses recovery from schizophrenia/labor, poverty and schizophrenia/antipsychotic drugs: use, abuse & non-use/etc.
