Praise

As a black woman thrashing with the new class divide and an intermittent but chronic depression that feels as old as rivers, I found [Lay My Burden Down] a relief, an assured voice in a wilderness [that] I felt I was essentially wandering alone. –Erin Aubry Kaplan, Salon

“A persuasive moral indictment of the mental-health establishment for not working harder to rid itself of prejudicial images of African-Americans within its own practices, and to address them in earnest in the larger society.” –Matthew V. Johnson, The Christian Century

“A stunner of a book. . . . The positive message here is that these scourges can be prevented.” –Leon Eisenberg, M.D., coauthor of Children in a Changing Health System
