Mental Health Exposed Anna Mehler Paperny
A vibrant, compelling memoir from a remarkable young woman that bravely reveals the real-life havoc wrought by depression and the urgent search for solutions. Illuminating, completely engaging  it is essential reading for all.

In her early twenties, while outwardly thriving in her dream job and enjoying warm familial support and a strong social network, award-winning journalist Anna Mehler Paperny found herself trapped by feelings of failure and despair. Her first suicide attempt landed her in the ICU, followed by weeks of enforced detention that ran the gamut of horrifying, hilarious, and absurd. This was Annas entry into the
labyrinthine psychiatric care system responsible for providing care to millions of Canadians.

She reveals in courageously frank detail her own experiences with the pharmacological pitfalls and side effects of long-term treatment, and offers moving case studies of conversations with others, opening wide a window into how we treat (and fail to treat) the disease that accounts for more years swallowed up by disability than any other in the world.

ANNA MEHLER PAPERNY is an award-winning reporter for Reuters. She received an investigative journalism prize for her series Death Behind Bars, exploring Canadas psychiatric prisons.
