Soaring the Skies of Schizophrenia by Brian Shell, Benjamin Taylor

"Soaring the Skies of Schizophrenia" is a book about the mental health system as co-written by two men who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, manic depression as well as schizo-affective disorder. Yet, they frankly discuss the realities of such a psychiatric diagnosis and how a label of mental illness doesn't affect the humanity of the good soul within. It is a lucid commentary about life before, during, and after psych ward stays with an eye on the prize of being a good and honest person who cares about truth, honor, integrity, and our destiny.

It also tackles the tough questions of whether an isolated psychotic episode warrants being labeled as mentally ill for life and ponders the possibility of living successfully without medication after a psych ward stay.

An appropriate metaphor for such an event is like riding a bike that slows to the point of losing its forward momentum to the point it wobbles so we fall. Yet, this book champions the idea that we can still get back on the bike again and ride with grace so as to regain the smile on our face as we rejoin the human race with the confidence so we continue to believe we can achieve.
