Product Description

In Breakthrough, World Health Organization Award–winning psychiatrist and mental health advocate Dr. Ahmed Hankir delivers a unique and powerful insight into mental health and wellness, mental illness, mental health treatment, and the culture surrounding mental health by tracing his own personal recovery journey from impoverished and shunned psychiatric patient to becoming an NHS Consultant psychiatrist. In the book you'll explore many of the issues currently dominating the discussion of mental health and illness, including the impacts of poverty, unemployment, the cost of living crisis, homelessness, addictions, the use of medication to treat mental illness, the widespread prevalence of stigma, discrimination, and racism in mental health, and much more.

You'll also find:

● Comprehensive discussions about how to overcome shame and stigma to seek help if you're suffering from a mental illness.

● Explorations of how mental health practitioners and family members of people living with mental health conditions can themselves remain healthy as they care for others.

● Examinations of why mental health–related stigma remains so stubbornly common in our societies and what we can do to combat it.
