A common struggle : a personal journey through the past and future of mental illness and addiction by Patrick J Kennedy( Book )

15 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Patrick J. Kennedy, the former congressman and youngest child of Senator Ted Kennedy, details his personal and political battle with mental illness and addiction, exploring mental health care's history in the country alongside his and every family's private struggles. On May 5, 2006, the New York Times ran two stories, 'Patrick Kennedy Crashes Car into Capitol Barrier' and then, several hours later, 'Patrick Kennedy Says He'll Seek Help for Addiction.' It was the first time that the popular Rhode Island congressman had publicly disclosed his addiction to prescription painkillers, the true extent of his struggle with bipolar disorder and his plan to immediately seek treatment. That could have been the end of his career, but instead it was the beginning. Since then, Kennedy has become the nation's leading advocate for mental health and substance abuse care, research and policy both in and out of Congress. And ever since passing the landmark Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act--and after the death of his father, leaving Congress--he has been changing the dialogue that surrounds all brain diseases. A Common Struggle weaves together Kennedy's private and professional narratives, echoing Kennedy's philosophy that for him, the personal is political and the political personal. Focusing on the years from his 'coming out' about suffering from bipolar disorder and addiction to the present day, the book examines Kennedy's journey toward recovery and reflects on Americans' propensity to treat mental illnesses as 'family secrets.' Beyond his own story, though, Kennedy creates a roadmap for equality in the mental health community, and outlines a bold plan for the future of mental health policy. Written with award-winning healthcare journalist and best-selling author Stephen Fried, A Common Struggle is both a cry for empathy and a call to action"--

Bitter pills : inside the hazardous world of legal drugs by Stephen Fried( Book )

10 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 805 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1992 Stephen Fried's wife, Diane, took a pill her doctor gave her for a minor infection and ended up in the emergency room. She was a victim of "the other drug problem," adverse reactions to prescription and over-the-counter medications that kill more people every year than all illegal drug use combined. Some drug reactions go away after a few days. Diane's did not. Fried set out to investigate the pharmaceutical safety net his wife had fallen through. His quest became a five-year inquiry into the entire legal drug culture, setting off two FDA investigations and winning numerous awards. He examined the international pharmaceutical industry (the most profitable legal business in the world) as well as the patients who unwillingly swallow its products and problems, the government "drug police," the high-pressure sales reps, the physicians, the nurses, the pharmacists, the researchers, and the consumer advocates. Bitter Pills is the result - a probing, rigorously documented investigative memoir of pill making, pill taking, and pill selling
Rush : revolution, madness, and the visionary doctor who became a founding father by Stephen Fried( Book )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 741 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The remarkable story of Benjamin Rush, medical pioneer and one of our nation's most provocative and unsung Founding Fathers ... One of the youngest signatories [of the Declaration of Independence] ... he was also, among stiff competition, one of the most visionary. A brilliant physician and writer, Rush was known as the "American Hippocrates" for pioneering national healthcare and revolutionizing treatment of mental illness and addiction. Yet medicine is only part of his legacy. Dr. Rush was both a progressive thorn in the side of the American political establishment--a vocal opponent of slavery, capital punishment, and prejudice by race, religion or gender--and close friends with its most prominent leaders. He was the protégé of Franklin, the editor of Common Sense, Washington's surgeon general, and the broker of peace between Adams and Jefferson, yet his stubborn convictions more than once threatened his career and his place in the narrative of America's founding. Drawing on a trove of previously unpublished letters and images, the voluminous correspondence between Rush and his better-known counterparts, and his candid and incisive personal writings ... Stephen Fried ... finally installs Dr. Rush in the pantheon of great American leaders."--Provided by publisher
