About this book


In this stimulating book, the author argues that the only way for radical improvement in our impoverished mental health sector is only achievable if mental health consumers have a much more powerful say in the planning and running of services. Only then will we see new directions in treatment, more relevant services, and considerably increased quality - consumers as colleagues.
