No One Cares About Crazy People

“In "No One Cares About Crazy People," Ron Powers explores the insidious treatment of the mentally ill throughout history and the social injustice perpetrated against their desperate families. Stigmatized by societies indifference towards the insane, Powers personal account of son Kevin’s slow descent into schizophrenia showcases the incredibly painful process faced while fighting for faster medical treatment. Based on the misunderstanding that schizophrenia can be cured with medication and the choice to cut government funding by misinformed legislators, institutions were closed, forcing the unstable into the streets and, inevitably, on the road to prison, punishment and certain death. Powers account is unfathomable as his oldest son Dean also descends into the dark recesses of the mentally ill. A painful, powerful book, "No One Cares About Crazy People" is sure to impact the way we see the insane, not as monsters determined to destroy society as we know it, but, as victims of government cutbacks and medical bureaucracy, continually faced with an overall attitude of unworthiness by all who witness their downfall.”
