Micro Mention "No One Cares About Crazy People"

Ron Powers

I cannot even begin to imagine how difficult it must have been for Ron Powers to write this book—but I am very glad that he did, and can't thank him enough. I hope one day it can be said that most people care about crazy people.

This book is a deeply personal book for Mr. Powers as both of his sons suffered from mental illness, one of which sadly lost his battle with depression. It is as moving a book as it is stark, underscoring the anguish of the mentally ill under the inadequate systems in place for their care here in the United States. The most shocking and troubling thing captured by this nonfiction is outlined by its title, which is the appalling indifference toward sufferers of poor mental health.
