American Psychosis

 E. Fuller Torrey, American Psychosis: How the Federal Government Destroyed the Mental Illness Treatment System (Oxford University Press, 2013). 

Today at least one-third of homeless individuals are seriously mentally ill, as are approximately 20 percent of those incarcerated, and public facilities are overrun by untreated individuals. An unflinching account of the history -- and present day failings -- of our mental health treatment system, American Psychosis is a rallying cry for the necessity of establishing better psychiatric care for our nation's most vulnerable.
