Following extensive research in the UK, Bruce Cohen allows mental health users to tell their own stories (or "narratives") of illness and recovery. Institutional and home treatment care is covered alongside controversial self-coping techniques such as drug-taking, spiritualism, alternative healing, sleep and watching television. This book is the first volume allowing mental health users to speak to the professional community which offers to treat them and as such will be an important resource for professionals, students and practitioners in the mental health field.

About the Author:

Dr Bruce M Z Cohen is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Sociology at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. His books include Being Cultural (2012), Psychiatric Hegemony: A Marxist Theory of Mental Illness (2016) and the Routledge International Handbook of Critical Mental Health (2017).

Review:

"Bruce Cohen offers innovative views about the value and impact of considering mental health services from users' perspectives." - British Journal of Psychology

"... very interesting, well researched and respectful of the service-user voice." - Psychiatric Bulletin

" an engaging critical study of the development and treatments of mental illnesses, which successfully demonstrates both the importance and relevance of social scientific approaches to the study of this area of medicine." - Medical Sociology Online

"In Mental Health User Narratives Cohen places the real experts on mental health problems centre stage. The subjective experience of people who use mental health services has been largely ignored, by researchers and clinicians, for as long as the 'medical model' has been dominant. This book provides a refreshing antidote to the bizarre notion that we can understand people's emotional pain by counting 'symptoms' and applying a diagnostic label. This is a must read for all involved in mental health services and research." -Professor John Read, University of Liverpool
