The author uses her experiences to dissect and demystify psychosis. She addresses important questions about the role of psychiatrists and hospitals, and the extent to which they help or impede recovery. Weaving together prose, artwork, and poetry, she explores how art and other integrative strategies can be used to avert repeat psychotic episodes and to consolidate that crucial, nascent maternal bond with her children. With unflinching honesty, the author examines topics related to psychosis, postpartum psychosis, and the impact of psychosis on motherhood. This book will provide invaluable insights into difficult and often misunderstood subjects appealing to fellow mothers, the general public, and mental health care practitioners.
