Kelechi Ubozoh, LD Green, Shizue Seigel, and Anita Roman share We've Been Too Patient: Voices from Radical Mental Health--Stories and Research Challenging the Biomedical Model. Join Books Inc. in Berkeley for an event with two editors & two contributors to this unflinching and important new work.

Overmedication, police brutality, electroconvulsive therapy, involuntary hospitalization, traumas that lead to intense altered states and suicidal thoughts: these are the struggles of those labeled "mentally ill." While much has been written about the systemic problems of our mental-health care system, this book gives voice to those with personal experience of psychiatric miscare often excluded from the discussion, like people of color and LGBTQ+ communities. It is dedicated to finding working alternatives to the "Mental Health Industrial Complex" and shifting the conversation from mental illness to mental health.
