Women’s Encounters with the Mental Health Establishment

15.00

Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s famous short story “The Yellow Wallpaper,” has come to represent the struggle of contemporary women to be understood by those from whom they seek psychological support and psychiatric treatment. This anthology gives voice to today’s women so that their own encounters with the mental health establishment can be heard and learned from. In addition to “The Yellow Wallpaper,” this book also contains works by Sylvia Plath, Kate Millett, Anne Sexton, Lauren Slater, and many more!

“A RICH COLLECTION OF JEWELS…. The writers give us a remarkable variety of experience, perspective, and emotion about their experiences in the mental health system, and reading their work, we are touched, astonished, and enraged.”

Paula J. Caplan, PhD, Author
