Prescription for Madness



Prescription for Madness is a powerful, heart wrenching story of a family whose lives are turned upside down when their oldest child, Christopher, is diagnosed with a mental illness at the age of sixteen. After Christopher starts a six month regime of anti-depressants and anti-psychotic medications the reader will be swept away as the family walks and then runs with Christopher as he rages, becomes increasingly violent, suicidal and ultimately committed to psychiatric hospitals. Desperately buying into every diagnosis handed by the doctors the mother is shocked to find out what in fact caused Christopher’s bizarre behavior in the first place. Prescription for Madness is a story of hope, determination and courage told through the eyes of Christopher’s mother. It is a story of a family’s love and support, of anger, disgust, embarrassment and eventual triumph.
