sceptical at first as I "Previously Had No Particular Awareness Or Interest In Psychiatric Care " had no particular awareness r interest in psychiatric care mental health issues and thought that it would be a book for those in the professionI uickly found that inside knowledge was not necessary and that it was actually a compassionate but very humorous read about folk those who care and those who are cared for some who are mad and some less so The author provides insightful accounts f patients and their treatments as well as detailing some f their relationships with the nursing staff making you realise that the kind f care that the author and his colleagues provide is very special indeedThe book does take you through the emotions You laugh very hard in places but you are most definitely not laughing at Pontius Pilate or conspiring against the patients You may also shed a tear in sadnessr anger but the author does attempt to explain why the patients are how they are and intersperses the anecdotes with explanations Livin de Life of the different illnesses and psychoses which helps to provide a context to the patients storiesI thoroughly enjoyed this book and without trying to make it sound like a textbook educated Educated in the sense that it helped mevercome my wn ignorance and in some cases prejudices about mental illnessAlthough I am sure this book will be pigeon holed in the health andor biography sections f bookshops and it is much than that I am eagerly anticipating a follow up by Dennis O Donnell and surely a memoir Be CentsAble: How to Cut Your

beenn my list for a good while and I admit I couldn t wait to jump right into thisFor the most part this book was a decent insight into mental illness which is written by Dennis O Donnell who was a nurse n ward 25 the locked ward for 75 years I have nurse n ward 25 the locked ward for 75 years I have with individuals suffering with mental illness and I know from experience that it is an extremely challenging profession no day is ever the same but The Legend of Joaquin Murrieta: California's Gold Rush Bandit one must remember that there are in fact many rewarding aspectsf the job tooThe people mentioned in this are patients that O Donnell came into contact with Limey Gumshoe over the years and the chapters read as little stories with some informationn different mental illnesses throughout I found these parts particularly interestingTo work in mental health I think Maritime Academy Graduate: Memoir Of A Third Mate one has to bef a certain character be able to show

book there are a couple Dressed for Thrills: 100 Years of Halloween Costumes and Masquerade of things that didn t bode well with me The first would be the Scottish dialect I ve no issue with it but when O Donnell chooses to narrate in English then a sentence later the Scottish dialect butts in well let s just say it didn t make me happyAlso I realise O Donnell loves a good joke but most likelyf this humor just simply wasn t funny and the majority Harcourt School Publishers Collections of this humor was made at the expensef the patients themselves which to me isn t the least bit professional

A decent memoir sad in parts funny in parts It is a Bit Elementary In Its elementary in its regarding mental illness but it is a good informative book for those not very familiar with psychiatry I found some Indiscretion of the humorous bits to beff putting as well as the Scottish dialect which can be to discern Really well written memoir recounting the experiences f a mental health nurse As you d expect there sadness tragedy and fear but this is a book suffused with such wonderful wit and humour ne gets the feeling this is Soul Dust onef the most honest reflections you could get The Dyfed Enigma: Unidentified Flying Objects in West Wales of working in this professionThere s a littlen the clinical side 6S: The 6S Review, Issue 2 of mental illness for the uninformed reader but important I think is the real insight into what living with a serious mental illness actually feels like for the individualIn addition to being a very competent writer I believe the author must have also been a great nurse The Locked Ward details the experiencef a psychiatric helper working in a psychiatric hospital Dennis O Donnell describes his heartfelt experience with day to day details upon his daily goings He writes upon the fear violence but also care and compassion which ccur in psychiatric hospitals At the same time O Donnell educates the reader about mental disorders symptoms treatment "And Care Of These "care f these An educational book but also Midwest Maize: How Corn Shaped the U.S. Heartland one filled with compassionate storiesf patients O Donnell has encountered The stories within this book are written in Surly Bonds order to educate readers about what really happens within a mental hospital and to rid the stereotypes upon it I would recommend this book to anyone Stories from movies and TV shows portray psychiatric hospitals as those filled with violence and evil However O Donnell s real experience and stories shed light upon the true care and compassion they hold instead These stories hold humour and they hold happiness as well as stories which really educate upon the different mentalities that the mentally disabled have Through reading this book mind sets upon the usual stereotypef psychiatric hospitals are bound to change along with a new found education upon mental disorders DNF And a painful Sex, Lies, and Videotape oneAhhhhhh I am so disappointed I decided to pause maybe permanently stop reading this book at 55% after uite a lotf perseverance n my partI am fascinated by mental health and especially the history f its treatment in the UK from the asylum system to today This book presented itself as a sombre and thoughtful exploration into the topic by someone with first hand experience working in the intensive psychiatric care unit Syzygy: Reflections on the Monastery of the Seven Rays ofne hospital The author made a point n several ccasions to ground the reader and encourage them not to be blinded by ill informed traditional stereotypes Whore Stories: A Revealing History of the World's Oldest Profession of psychiatric patients He reminds us to his credit that psychiatric illnesses and those who suffer from them are not a laughing matter and should be treated with respect and compassionbefore presenting them in a light heartedr thinly veiled mocking light two minutes later It s really hard to explain exactly what this is like in a review but it just came across to me as very hypocritical and uite frankly uncomfortable I give the book 2 stars simply because The Paper Wife of the few momentsf

uncouth in his speech with uite a lotf swearing yet in most مترو of his prose he used unnecessarily florid and erudite language This contradiction made it very difficult to build up empathy for himr
