Review by:
Elisabeth Brockett Bech

This book is timely. Never before has there been such a great energy mobilized in the interest of mental health. Those who have worked through lean years feel encouragement about this, yet apprehensive over the facile overselling of psychiatry. Enthusiastic folk from all walks of life show strong convictions and missionary zeal. This volume issues warnings to apply the brakes to unsound efforts. It also challenges professionals to harness this energy into safe channels.
