[SR: 204972], Paperback, [EAN: 9780471245322], Wiley, Wiley, Book, [PU: Wiley], Wiley, "Powerful. . . . The crisis [Torrey] delineates should stir any halfway sensitive human being to anger."--The New York Times Book Review "Brilliant and remarkably detailed. . . . Dr. Torrey, our clearest and most informed voice for the mentally ill, offers his own insightful plan for a way out . . . of a healthcare scandal that remains one of America's most enduring shames."--Phil Donahue. "If President Clinton is looking for a worthy goal to accomplish in his second term, here's one: Rescue the homeless mentally ill. It can be done. . . . Dr. E. Fuller Torrey . . . provides a five-year road map in Out of the Shadows."--New York Daily News. "An important book . . . timely and very well written."--The New England Journal of Medicine. "Controversial ideas, forcefully presented."--Kirkus Reviews "Moving and vivid. . . . Torrey's powerful prescription for change challenges conventional wisdom and political correctness. His searing case examples will haunt the reader."--Laurie Flynn Executive Director National Alliance for the Mentally Ill, E. Fuller Torrey excoriates the way the mentally ill are treated in this country. His polemic against the concept of "deinstitutionalization" takes us on a grim tour of the lives led by the mentally ill: untreated, homeless, jobless, and helpless against street violence. Torrey argues that the criteria for involuntary commitment should include the need for treatment., 4682, Mental Health, 11128, Anxiety Disorders, 598622, Attention Deficit & Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders, 4693, Bipolar, 282909, Codependency, 11146, Compulsive Behavior, 16311461, Dementia, 4689, Depression, 15992951, Dissociative Disorders, 282910, Dreams, 282911, Eating Disorders, 11170, Emotions, 4739, Happiness, 4694, Mood Disorders, 600620, Personality Disorders, 16311441, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, 282839, Postpartum Depression, 4695, Schizophrenia, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11192, Pathologies, 11119, Psychology & Counseling, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 9, History, 4762, Africa, 4808, Americas, 16252761, Arctic & Antarctica, 4884, Asia, 4921, Australia & Oceania, 4935, Europe, 4995, Middle East, 5032, Russia, 4853, United States, 5035, World, 4873, Ancient Civilizations, 5011, Military, 4987, Historical Study & Educational Resources, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 6511988011, General, 6511980011, Psychology, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 6511991011, Mental Illness, 6511980011, Psychology, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 6511994011, Pathologies, 6511980011, Psychology, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11288, Sociology, 16244271, Abuse, 271633011, Class, 297480, Death, 11291, Marriage & Family, 16311191, Medicine, 10582, Race Relations, 11293, Rural, 11294, Social Theory, 11296, Urban, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

A powerful indictment of how we treat people suffering from acute mental disease."----The New York Times Book Review. "An important book...Timely and very well-written."----San Francisco Chronicle Now in paper! Our mental health system has dismally failed to serve the growing number of people suffering from serious psychiatric disturbance-with far-reaching implications for community safety, family health, and the well-being of the mentally ill themselves. This compellingly argued and compassionate book by one of the nation2s leading experts describes how this happened and exactly what we can do about it. These compelling examples illustrate just a small part of the mental illness crisis in America. Out of the Shadows explores the causes of the crisis and the tragic toll it is having on individuals, families, and communities across the country. This hard-hitting book also offers E. Fuller Torrey2s recommendations to fix the problem. Basing his ideas on actual programs, Torrey offers policy that blends compassion and assistance for this neglected segment of society. A timely and controversial look at a part of the health care system receiving intense scrutiny. Reform ideas include legalizing involuntary commitment, shifting the responsibility to states, and depoliticizing mental illness. E. FULLER TORREY, MD, (Bethesda, Maryland) is the author of Surviving Schizophrenia, which has sold more than 225,000 copies. 20th century,clinical,health fitness and dieting,history,internal medicine,law,medical books,medicine,medicine and health sciences,mental health Psychiatry, Wiley & Sons, Incorporated, John
