It demonstrated convincingly, but controversially, how political, economic and labor market forces shape social responses to the mentally ill, mould psychiatric treatment philosophy, and influence the onset and course of one of the most common forms of mental illness.In this revised and updated third edition, Dr. Warner analyzes the latest research to extend the conclusions of his original work and tells us whether conditions and outcome for people with schizophrenia are getting better or worse in Britain and America in recent years. In addition, he critiques recent approaches to preventing the occurrence of schizophrenia, describes the latest advances in the rehabilitation of people with schizophrenia, suggests innovative strategies for advancing the economic situation of people with mental illness, and provides a guide on how to combat the stigma of mental illness at the local and national level.
