In this acclaimed book, first published almost thirty years ago, Peter Barham examines the changing fortunes of mental patients in the era of the asylum and after. He demonstrates powerfully that the closure of mental hospitals cannot meet the real needs of people with severe mental health problems without a profound rethinking of the role, rights and status of the former mental patient in society.

This new edition features a preface by veteran mental health survivor, trainer campaigner and poet Peter Campbell and an extensive prologue by Peter Barham.
