In Committed to the Sane Asylum: Narratives on Mental Wellness and Healing, artist Susan Schellenberg, a formerpsychiatric patient, and psychologist Rosemary Barnes relate their own stories, conversations, and reflections concerning the contributions and limitations of conventional mental health care and their collaborative search for alternatives such asart therapy.
