Praise

The Last Taboo is a ‘must read’ for anyone interested or involved in issues of mental illness and mental health.”
–Phil Upshall, Director, National Affairs, Mood Disorders Association of Canada

“The best and most practical book ever written about mental illness and mental health in Canada.…Will do more than any previous publication to break down the fear and stigma surrounding people with psychiatric disabilities.”
–Canadian Mental Health Association

“Honest and diligently researched … As The Last Taboo shows in some of its best passages, mentally ill human beings cannot be reduced to diagnostic categories.”
Globe and Mail

“I know of only a few books that explain mental health and illness well to the general reader. The Last Taboo is now one of these books, and it gives a welcome Canadian perspective. … It is well-written and entertaining.”
–Montreal Gazette

“Clearly, this is an important book that deserves wide readership.”
Edmonton Journal

“A grand, eloquent guide.”
Hamilton Spectator

“The authors demonstrate that behind the outward symptoms of disease resides a recognizable human soul.”
Quill & Quire

“A most helpful tour of the mental health system thickets … a road map and travellers’ tale all in one.”
Toronto Star
