We've Been Too Patient : Voices from Radical Mental Health--Stories and Research Challenging the Biomedical Model
by L. D. Green and Kelechi Ubozoh and Robert Whitaker




Overview -
25 unflinching stories and essays from the front lines of the radical mental health movement

Overmedication, police brutality, electroconvulsive therapy, involuntary hospitalization, traumas that lead to intense altered states and suicidal thoughts: these are the struggles of those labeled "mentally ill." While much has been written about the systemic problems of our mental-health care system, this book gives voice to those with personal experience of psychiatric miscare often excluded from the discussion, like people of color and LGBTQ+ communities. It is dedicated to finding working alternatives to the "Mental Health Industrial Complex" and shifting the conversation from mental illness to mental health.
