Date of review: December 9, 2022
This is one of those books that always stays on my mind – it highlights an alternative way of framing psychiatric diagnoses in a way that emphasises our personal narratives rather than the labels we are given. It is a controversial read that sits on the somewhat extreme end of anti-diagnostic schools of thought, but I enjoyed the alternative perspective and found myself agreeing and resonating with a lot of what was written. This would be a great read for those who have ever received a diagnosis, those who are suffering in any way and wish to make sense of their stories in an empowering way, or those working in the mental health field.
