Here’s the back cover info:

After her journey through madness Mary O’Hagan realised the mental health system and society did more harm than good. Madness Made Me is a myth-busting account of madness and our customary responses to it through the lens of lived experience.

‘This memoir sucks the reader in from the first page. Mary’s story, from the psychiatric ward to the United Nations, offers hope to the millions who are told their emotional pain is an irreversible brain disorder.’
John Read, Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of Liverpool, author of Models of Madness.

‘An incredible tour de force. Mary replaces the narrative of psychopathology with the subversive idea that there may be value in madness. Everyone should read this beautifully written, ground-breaking book.’
Rachel Perkins, mental health service user and co-author of Inclusion and Recovery: A Model for Mental Health Practice. 

‘Mary invites us into her life on her fascinating path from serious distress to thriving. A privilege to read with a brilliant ending.’
Fran Silvestri, President and CEO, International Initiative for Mental Health Leadership.

I hope you enjoy it too.
