Much Madness, Divinest Sense
Women's Stories of Mental Health and Health CareBook - 2017
Much Madness, Divinest Sense is a collection of women's writing about mental health and health care. The contributors are varied: not only physicians and other health care professionals but also indigenous women, transgender women, daughters, sisters, mothers, and grandmothers. They are the recipients, providers, and critics of mental health care. In this volume, they break the silence and speak about the messy subject of mental illness today. As with Kaplan-Myrth and Hanson's first collection, Women Who Care: Women's Stories of Health Care and Caring, the stories, essays, and poems create a powerful collection that is as raw as it is real. For too long, women's mental health issues have been hidden from view, their stories unheard, their voices silenced. This volume hopes to shed some light on the dark halls and windowless rooms where women's mental health has been hidden from view.
