This book challenges the now widely held belief that most people diagnosed with schizophrenia will require long-term neuroleptic treatment, and that recovery is relatively unusual without it. It shows how a holistic approach which treats body, mind and sould can significantly improve the likelihood of healing and recovery, even for those with a long history of schizophrenia

Review:

This book provides a quality and quantity of analysis and insight that is exceptional, very necessary and otherwise amazingly difficult to access. A superbly researched account of the good and bad consequences of good and bad prescribing. A brilliant guide to anti-psychotic medication for mental health consumers, their families and carers, and health professionals. --Professor Bill Healy, School of Social Work and Social Policy, Faculty of Health Sciences, La Trobe University, Melbourne

An informed, well-researched, complex challenge to the way we rely on medication for the treatment of people with schizophrenia. there is a lot to learn here, not only about medication but also about how to really support the recovery of people with schizophrenia --Noel Renouf PhD,
