Reviews Elsewhere – Out of the Madhouse
Spotted this review and thought this sounds like a pretty interesting look into depression and recovery.
Michael Maitland suffered from clinical depression, anxiety, and anorexia so severe that it landed him in the emergency room with a collapsed lung.
In his new book, Out Of The Madhouse: An Insider’s Guide To Managing Depression and Anxiety, which he co-wrote with his father, Michael takes us inside his journey – through journal entries – from suicidal to recovery.
That certainly would give readers a pretty good look into what depression can look like. I think many people might benefit from reading about Michael’s descent into depression as well as his journey to health. As Claire says about the book in her review:
Interspersing diary entries, poignant fatherly reflections, and practical, helpful tips, Out of the Madhouse is a unique look at the many facets of mental illness, the family it affects, and the often tumultuous road to recovery.
