The true story of how a bright teenager was transformed into a zombie thanks to a cocktail of drugs and electric shock treatment for an illness she never had. Jean Davison lost years of her life when doctors misdiagnosed her mental state as chronic schizophrenia. Sucked into the psychiatric system, she eventually lost her job, her boyfriends and all self-esteem. But eventually she managed to break free. Told with humour and insight, using extracts from her medical case notes, Jean’s memoir raises disturbing questions about psychiatric treatment in the sixties and seventies, which are still relevant today.

“Essential reading for everyone who is involved in improving services in mental health.”
— Dorothy Rowe, author and psychologist
