Supporters of caregivers gain empathy; professionals learn the truth about what goes on behind the wall. Parents living similar experiences will feel less alone. Chapters 2 - 8 are single narratives about each child.

When mental illness enters the national discussion, it typically comes in the wake of a violent tragedy, attracting temporary attention and further misunderstanding.

Longden’s story shows that there is, in the end, a message in the madness. Yet she survived.

In psychology, longden still hears voices — and she says she wouldn’t live without them. Part personal memoir and part medical argument, Learning from the Voices in My Head challenges society’s definition of crazy.

She honors the courage of anyone who suffers with mental illness and is trying to improve his life and participate in his own recovery. Fast forward to his teenage years, though, and Ben's life has spun out of control. Ben behind his voices also reminds professionals in the psychiatric field that every patient who comes through their doors has a life, one that he has lost through no fault of his own.
