This is the story that reveals both the innards of “Schizophrenia” and the way a person can make peace with the forces that are following them around. Learn about some of the harshest realities in American life: inner-city poverty, housing authority politics, gangsterism, off the grid murder, long-term psychiatric incarceration, homelessness, and isolation from family. This is the perspective of one mental health worker who took advocacy too far and landed in a chronic backward of a repressive state hospital. Clyde Dee is an anonymous psychotherapist who currently works with twelve years of tenure in an inner-city mental health facility. One day he hopes to help revolutionize treatment for “psychosis” across diagnostic divides.
