Book Group: No One Cares About Crazy People

This discussion is part of the Democracy and Dissent Book Group.

Join us Sunday, September 2 at 2:00pm to discuss No One Cares About Crazy People: My Family and the Heartbreak of Mental Illness in America by Ron Poweres (Hachette, $16.99).

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and New York Times bestselling author Ron Powers learned firsthand about the inaccessibility of adequate health care for the mentally ill in America when he witnessed his own children's struggles with schizophrenia. By interweaving his personal experiences with a richly researched history of mental illness in America, Powers deftly exposes the legacy of bad science, ill-advised policies, and inaccessible treatment that stretches back generations.
