Praise for A WAY OUT OF MADNESS:

"Everyone touched by mental illness should have a copy of this slim but extraordinarily powerful guide; there's nothing else like it. This book will change lives."
—Gail A. Hornstein, PhD, author of Agnes's Jacket: A Psychologist's Search for the Meanings of Madness
"Therapists Daniel Mackler and Matthew Morrissey show that learning to deal successfully with family relationships—whether they be a source of distress or a source of comfort—can be the key to recovery. The powerful personal stories in the second part of the book attest both to the wisdom of their advice and to the fact that people can descend into 'madness' and then fully recover, and do so without needing to stay on psychiatric medications for 'life.'"
—Robert Whitaker, author, Anatomy of an Epidemic: Magic Bullets, Psychiatric Drugs, and the Astonishing Rise of Mental Illness in America

"A compassionate, well-founded alternative to conventional psychiatry. We mental health professionals should take note."
—Ann-Louise Silver, M.D., first president, ISPS-US

"People struggling with the experiences commonly labeled as 'psychiatric disorders' will find not only comfort but solidarity and inspiration in this special book. The authors combine sound advice on navigating family systems with insightful support for finding your own path to wellness."
—Ashley McNamara, co-founder, The Icarus Project
