Review
'This book offers the reader authentic service user voices. There is the black humour that emerges every time people who use services get together, the mixed feelings about the future that so often come across, and the varying views about how much we are able to take control of our own distress. This makes it well worth reading, particularly for professionals.' - Clare Ockwell, Mental Health Today
