Product description...

“Absolutely Brilliant” “Impacting and Honest”


Ann Haeberle had a close-knit family, a normal childhood, and a strong sense of identity. Although she had been healthy for most of her life, at the age of 27, she was stunned to be diagnosed with bipolar disorder. And so began a ten-year journey regaining her mental health, despite the many pitfalls of our mental healthcare system. Psych Ward Confidential is based on the true story of Ann’s devastating loss—the loss of her sanity, her voice, and her dignity—and how she fought to regain control over her life with courage and faith. In poetic form, Ann shares the trauma of her experiences in the mental health system through the rhythm of her words and the depth of her emotion. This is an important book not only for those in the mental health profession but also for those who suffer from mental illness and their families by providing an insider’s view of the often chilling reality of treatment facilities. Psych Ward Confidential is honest, hard-hitting, and beautifully expressed. “Ann Haeberle leaves me questioning our mental health system and the further damage done to individuals in an attempt to ‘help’ them and their families.” — Cynthia Barrios-Woodward, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
