In this book, Susan Nathiel, PhD, LMFT, shares her in-depth interviews with a dozen men who reflect on their experience-from childhood to the present-growing up with a mother or father suffering from some form of mental illness such as depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, etc. These candid accounts detail each man's unique personal narrative, yet some common themes emerge. Inspired by her own childhood experience growing up alongside her brothers with a mentally ill parent, Nathiel knows the right questions to ask: how did these boys deal with shame and stigma? How did they cope with the expectations that boys and men are not emotional and don't need to talk about frightening, confusing experiences? How have they managed close relationships as adults? What has been the legacy of family mental illness for each one of these men? This is one of the only books to offer a range of different stories focused on the same topic. These are rarely heard, deeply personal stories that explain how these men coped, how they grew up, and how they eventually healed-or didn't-from deeply troubling experiences.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.

Beyond Schizophrenia : Michael's Journey. by Dunham, Susan Frances.; Hayes, Larry.(DLC)1868671;
Cover -- Copyright -- Contents -- Foreward -- Acknowledgments -- Prologue.What would you do if your child suffered with something so severe it affected every aspect of his life? Susie Dunham, Midwestern mom and former nurse, never suspected her son Michael was anything but a typical college student with big dreams until he developed schizophrenia shortly after his 21st birthday. The Dunham family quickly becomes immersed in the nightmare world of mental illness in America: psychiatric wards, a seemingly indifferent nursing staff, and the trial-and-error world of psychotropic meds. Michael's ultimate recovery and remission comes with plenty of traumatic incidents involving both ignorance and stigma, but his courage and quest for dignity will inspire all readers. "Susie Dunham's heroic, heart-rending story is a beacon of light in the darkness of insanity. It shows that recovery is hard-won but possible for people who develop schizophrenia, despite a media that sensationalizes them, a society that shuns them, and a dysfunctional mental healthcare system that fails them miserably." --Patrick Tracey, author of Stalking Irish Madness: Searching for the Roots of My Family's Schizophrenia "Every person in a leadership position needs to take the time to read this moving story of triumph over adversity." --State Representative John Adams, Ohio House Minority Whip "The fact that Michael bravely fought this disease, picked up the pieces and moved beyond it, should give others hope that one day schizophrenia will be seen as a treatable disease with no stigma attached." --Sharon Goldberg, News & Reviews Editor,"NYC Voices": A Journal for Mental Health Advocacy "Beyond Schizophrenia: Michael's Journey is a book that I couldn't put down. The story of Michael's parents Susie and Mark who support their son both in good times and bad really touched me. I really like the way the symptoms of schizophrenia are explained clearly."--Bill MacPhee, Founder/CEO of SZ Magazine Also available in trade paperback and eBook editions Learn more at www.SusieDunham.org From the Reflections of America Series at Modern History Press www.ModernHistoryPress.com PSY022050 Psychology : Psychopathology - Schizophrenia BIO026000 Biography & Autobiography / Personal Memoirs MED105000 Medical / Psychiatry / General.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
