Mental Health User Narratives: New Perspectives on Illness and Recovery by Bruce Cohen

In short, we can use rituals to mark the ending of bad times, and we can also engage in rituals to mark the beginning of hopefully better times. The story I choose to tell today is very different from the one I would have chosen to tell a few months ago. Because of my mood episodes, I have learned to appreciate the little things, I have cut toxic people out of my life and I have formed meaningful friendships. I am more grateful for my health, more loving towards those who care about me, and more open to facing my fears. I live my life at times afraid, at times fearless, but always one day at a time, one baby step after another.

While some of our different experiences have been very difficult, we have also come to embrace some aspects of this difference. We have questioned a lot about life and have come to some interesting conclusions. We have come to value certain things that once we may not have valued.

    Mental Health Recovery and Resiliency, Module 1 of 4

    As an amateur in the field of sociology of Mental health, I am glad that I came across Cohen's book. Cohen has brilliantly, through reflexivity and scholarship, critiqued the dominant psychiatric model of mental illness. He argues for the narrative approach and presents his research through this approach. He compares the experiences of service users in a hospital setting versus the home treatment, analysing the differences and similarities and critically engaging the reader in th A full 5 stars!

    He compares the experiences of service users in a hospital setting versus the home treatment, analysing the differences and similarities and critically engaging the reader in the construction of knowledge. Throughout the book, he, avoids "analysing" the service users' voices, challenges the researcher's position in the research, grounds himself in critical theories and demonstrates his command over the subject.

    The book is well-researched, has a good historical grounding and flows beautifully.
