An unflinching account of a family's struggle to come to terms with an adult child's severe mental illness and find hope and love on the other side. What is shows us, once again, is that most of what we think we know about mental illness is just plain wrong.

I was up all night reading After Schizophrenia. In writing this compelling and beautifully written book, Margaret Hawkins joins pioneers in truth, like John Nash of A Beautiful Mind, by opening another door on this strangely dark place and allowing the light of experience to shed understanding and compassion. After Schizophrenia gives hope to all. I loved this book and thank Margaret Hawkins for having the courage to write it, her family for living through it. Judy Collins, singer, songwriter, and social activist-- "Reviews"
