The Madness of Adam and Eve: how schizophrenia shaped humanity
David Horrobin Bantam Press, 275pp, £18.99
ISBN 0593046498
There was time, when religion was dominant, that the way to make sense of otherwise seemingly inexplicable conditions such as major mental illnesses - schizophrenia and manic depression, for example - was to suggest that sufferers had some inner path to God, that they were holy fools, seers, visionaries. In these more secular days, when art has replaced religion, experts suggest that mental illness and creativity are crucially linked. In the United States, Kay Redfield Jamison, in a series of books, has argued persuasively for a significant link between manic depression and artistic creativity. In this latest book on the subject, David Horrobin suggests, not quite so convincingly, that a "touch of schizophrenia" is associated with exceptional artistic and scientific abilities.
Horrobin, however, boldly insists that the genes for schizophrenia are responsible for most of the religious sense, most of the technical and artistic creativity and most of the leadership qualities of modern human beings. On occasion, such exceptional ability is manifested by individuals, such as John Nash, who carry all the genes necessary for schizophrenia to appear. More commonly, however, it is manifested by individuals, usually close relatives of people with schizophrenia, who carry just some of the genes and hence do not themselves suffer from schizophrenia, but show so-called "schizotypal" personality characteristics such as pedantry, dogmatism, magical thinking and emotional coldness. Horrobin picks out Isaac Newton as just such an individual, given that Newton was not just a man of the utmost creative brilliance, but someone obsessed with alchemy, the occult and secretiveness, and given to paranoid feuding and social withdrawal.

The Original 'Psychiatry Anti-Psychiatry Re-visited' page

To understand Anti-Psychiatry one has to first understand Psychiatry. Psychiatry is primarily a social institution which removes from society the "mentally ill and attempts to subdue their symptoms using drugs. Patients are diagnosed, labeled and drugged. Emphasis is on "Normalization". The suppression of difference, originality and vision - Conformism - making obedient robots that do not create anxiety in others.
Anti-Psychiatry emphasis is on making the individual whole. Diagnosis and analysis are replaced by uncritical listening. Labeling is replaced by witnessing the individual as an individual. Anti psychiatry tries to reverse the rules of the Psychiatric game.

A personal account of a mental health illness similar to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
SCHIZO-AFFECTIVE DISORDER: MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE A personal account of a mental health illness with similarities to schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder BACKGROUND * SCHOOL LIFE * SIXTH FORM * EARLY ADULT LIFE ... POEM ABOUT DEPRESSION BACKGROUND - SCHOOL LIFE When I was 11 years old I left junior school and went to Kingshurst Comprehensive. I was the only person from my junior school to go to this comprehensive. This was the first stage in my isolation. While at the comprehensive I was never myself and acted the clown in class. On top of this, when I was 11 or 12, my dad found out that my mother was seeing another man who she had met on holiday in Spain. They did not divorce but the atmosphere at home became more and more strained over time. When I was 15 I went on a school trip to France and ended up going out with a girl called Karen. She was 13 and yet far more experienced than me. We had a great time but it did not last. On coming back to school I felt uncomfortable about going out with someone younger than myself.. A week after the French trip I went on a geography field trip in Wales. Almost by accident, I ended up going out with Catherine who I had liked for some time. On returning from the trip I ran into Karen who quite rightly gave me a hard time and made me feel really bad about myself. I carried on going with Catherine for a few weeks but things did not work out and I decided to call things off. I phoned up Karen and told her about it. I hoped we could get together but she did not want to know.

    Our understanding of schizophrenia has evolved since its symptoms were first catalogued by German psychiatrist Emil Kraepelin in the late 19th century (Andreasen, 1997a). Even though the cause of this disorder remains elusive, its frightening symptoms and biological correlates have come to be quite well defined. Yet misconceptions abound about symptoms: schizophrenia is neither nor Table 4-6 Schizophrenia is characterized by profound disruption in cognition and emotion, affecting the most fundamental human attributes: language, thought, perception, affect, and sense of self. The array of symptoms, while wide ranging, frequently includes psychotic manifestations, such as hearing internal voices or experiencing other sensations not connected to an obvious source (hallucinations) and assigning unusual significance or meaning to normal events or holding fixed false personal beliefs (delusions). No single symptom is definitive for diagnosis; rather, the diagnosis encompasses a pattern of signs and symptoms, in conjunction with impaired occupational or social functioning (DSM-IV). Symptoms are typically divided into positive and negative symptoms (see Table 4-7 Table 4-6. DSM-IV diagnostic criteria for schizophrenia

Jung Circle Welcome to Jung Circle, a temenos, or Sacred Sphere in which we celebrate the holistic vision of C.G.Jung; a place where anything can happen and where Mercurius reigns supreme. What our age most needs is a rediscovery of the life, boundlessness, and sacredness of the psyche, and a renewed honour for the gods who inform it and speak to us through our dreams, our lives, our loved ones, gifts and wounds, and through the boundless realms of the imaginal. Here we offer what will hopefully be welcomed as some food for soul, mind and imagination, so pull up a log, refill your tankards, and join us around the fire!

What is schizophrenia?
Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disease. Approximately 1 percent of the population develops schizophrenia during their lifetime - more than 2 million Americans suffer from the illness in a given year. Although schizophrenia affects men and women with equal frequency, the disorder often appears earlier in men, usually in the late teens or early twenties, than in women, who are generally affected in the twenties to early thirties. People with schizophrenia often suffer terrifying symptoms such as hearing internal voices not heard by others, or believing that other people are reading their minds, controlling their thoughts, or plotting to harm them. These symptoms may leave them fearful and withdrawn. Their speech and behavior can be so disorganized that they may be incomprehensible or frightening to others. Available treatments can relieve many symptoms, but most people with schizophrenia continue to suffer some symptoms throughout their lives; it has been estimated that no more than one in five individuals recovers completely. This is a time of hope for people with schizophrenia and their families. Research is gradually leading to new and safer medications and unraveling the complex causes of the disease. Scientists are using many approaches from the study of molecular
