A Father’s Search Through
America’s Mental Health Madness
When his son is declared mentally ill, the
trailblazing journalist is thrown headlong
into the maze of contradictions, dispari-ties, and catch-22s that is America’s mental
health system. “As riveting to read as it is
important it be read.”—Senator Pete V.
Dominici and Nancy Domenici. “For anyone in the thick of the battle for the mind
of a mentally ill loved one, a new champion has emerged. Crazy is both a clarion
call for change and justice, and an
enthralling portrait of a father who refused
to surrender.”—Bebe Moore Campbell.
