Description:      From psychiatric wards through to the hallowed halls of the United Nations, Mary O'Hagan has had the full gamut of experience in the mental health sphere. With her belief in the value of 'madness' Mary channelled her experiences of the New Zealand mental health service and those of her fellow sufferers into committed advocacy, culminating in her roles as the Mental Health Commissioner and more recently as an international mental health consultant.

Sometimes uncomfortable, always honest and uniquely insightful, this is an important and thought-provoking personal account of the full human experience of 'madness', and its place in our society.
