Trying to Understand

by Hoover on Jun 14, 2007

Lauren Slater's work is especially valuable for those who have no personal understanding of, or experience of, the world of mental disorders. She has worked with people of varying degrees of illness, those who were psychotic, those who were not, those who were despairing and in agony. It is - I believe - of vital importance that the world accepts that suffering exists in the mind, not solely in the body. Pain hurts. Of course there are differences, but while there are still many who wish to argue that diseases of the mind are purely self-induced it is important that they should be shown, and believe in, agony in thought as well as in other areas. Slater writes very well indeed, and with that touch of the personal that makes characters spring to life on the page.
