In its most recent report, the National Institute of Mental Health states that five-percent of all Americans deal with serious mental health issues. This is six times the number we had before we used psychiatric medications so liberally according to Robert Whitaker, winner of the 2010 award for best investigative journalism for his book, “Anatomy of an Epidemic.”

In “Resources for Extraordinary Healing: Schizophrenia, Bipolar and Other Serious Mental Illnesses” (ISBN 1466340835), Bragdon explains practices and resources from Brazil that understand the origins of these disturbances and how to effectively treat them. “This fills in the gaps of our own understanding,” she says.

Bragdon has spent the past decade in Brazil, studying with the most influential practitioners of body, mind, spirit therapies who use techniques developed over 100 years. She shares what she learned in an engaging and colorful ways to help readers gain a better understanding of the mental health issues that plague so many Americans. These real-life success stories from individuals once incapacitated by mental illness who are now fully recovered will hopefully inspire readers and urge them toward their own recovery.

To better help those who may be personally afflicted with mental health issues or know someone who is, “Resources for Extraordinary Healing” offers an annotated list of available resources for recovery in the United States. Bragdon includes recommendations and contact information so that affected individuals, family members and health care providers can find what they need.

“No other book calls for a cautious approach to psychiatric medication, and reveals the model of integrative care used in Brazil, and offers a list of resources for those who live outside Brazil who want such integrative care,” Bragdon says. “It’s an inexpensive and user-friendly guide.”
