“Mental Health”

GBP 4.45 — Released 1 May 2012

The narrative of mental distress and illness often focuses on the individual: it is they who must work on their recovery. Yet the anxieties that trigger many mental disorders often arise from the social and economic conditions people find themselves in. While the sale of psychiatric drugs rockets, no pill exists yet to treat fragmented communities or the social ravages of greed-based economies. May's New Internationalist argues the case for restoring social health as an essential part of the mental health discussion. And there is a welcome return for popular author John F Schumaker, who explains why living in a material world is driving us to distraction.
