9780147516404: Price of Silence, The : A Mom's Perspective on Mental Illness

Like most of the nation, Liza Long spent 14 December 2012, mourning the victims of the Newtown shooting at the hands of mentally ill Adam Lanza. Long is also the mother of a child with a mental illness, and she wondered: """"What if my son does that someday?"""" Powerful and shocking, The Price Of Silence looks at how society stigmatises mental illness - including in children - and the devastating societal cost. In the wake of repeated acts of mass violence, Long draws from her experience of dealing with a mentally ill child to point the way forward.
