9781898059639: Beyond Prozac: Healing Mental Distress

Lovelessness and loneliness cannot be explained by chemical changes in the brain and cured by the ingestion of drugs. Lovelessness and loneliness, like anxiety and depression and all the ways of expressing distress which are called mental disorder, are part of what it is to be human, but part that can be understood, diminished and banished from our lives simply by caring wisely for ourselves. Terry Lynch understands and cares wisely for us all. His immense warmth and humanity are revealed on every page of this book. "It is truly a book for our time and for all time". (Dorothy Rowe, psychologist, author, columnist".

About the Author:

Before he trained as a therapist in 1997, Terry Lynch worked as a GP for over ten years. During this time he became increasingly concerned about fundamental issues such as the quality of medical training in mental health, the excessive reliance on medication to treat mental health problems and the pervasive influence of the pharmaceutical industry on medical practice. In 2003, he was appointed by the Irish Ministry for Health to the government-appointed Expert Group on Mental Health Policy: the remit of this group is to shape the direction of mental health policy over the next two decades.

Review:

Beyond Prozac is in my view the single most important contribution to our understanding of suicide in the past ten years - As a statement by a qualified and practising doctor of something which many of us instinctively know to be true, it is the vital articulation of the unsayable. John Waters, The Irish Times.
