it's the truth even if it didn't happen.

In honor of suicide prevention week last week, and the fact that we are all a little crazy, I want to share with you all an extremely interesting read. Suspicious Minds: How Culture Shapes Madness by Joel and Ian Gold is a book about the influence that culture has on madness, with a focus on schizophrenia and delusions. Mental illness is a disease, and environment does play a role in this disease, just as it does in many others. In this book you will find true stories from actual patients, and also a new perspective on how mental illness is diagnosed and treated. Suspicious Minds is expertly researched and the writing is easily accessible to anyone who's interested.
