Recovery from Schizophrenia, from its first publication, was acclaimed as a work of major importance. It demonstrated convincingly, but controversially, how political, economic and labor market forces shape social responses to the mentally ill, mold 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 analyzes the latest research to extend the conclusions of the original work, and tells us whether conditions and outcome for people with schizophrenia are getting better or worse for people in Britain and America. Recovery from Schizophrenia's radical analysis of the factors affecting the outcome of schizophrenia is essential reading for all psychiatrists, mental health professionals, mental health advocates, social workers, rehabilitation personnel, and psychologists.
