In the Name of Help: A Novel Exposing Psychiatric Abuse


Diane Klein

From the back cover:

"A chilling exposť of the all-too-common savage abuses of psychiatric treatment. Cathryn Silberg Kent appears to have it all. She is the beautiful and intelligent daughter of wealthy Midwest parents, but dark secrets lie underneath this facade and Cathryn seeks psychiatric help. It is the beginning of a downward spiral, a spiral that ends in an abyss of mind-altering drugs, physical and emotional abuses, and, finally, electric shock treatments. Her life is no longer her own. Cathryn becomes a human pawn in a web woven by a corrupt system.

The tragedy of Cathryn Silberg Kent brings home the horrors that lie just beneath the surface of our modern society, horrors that are all the more shocking because they could happen to anyone.

Not since Ken Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in 1962, has a novel dealt such a formidable blow to the atrocities that exist in what we call our 'mental health' system."
