Nobody's Normal: How Culture Created the Stigma of Mental Illness, by Roy Richard Grinker


Very interesting history of mental illness and stigmatization! I wish he had talked more about the different mental illnesses, stigmas, and how certain disorders aren't taken seriously but it did have a lot of cool information. It harped a little too much on PTSD in war times and didn't talk about the nuances of other forms of PTSD enough but it did slightly mention it. There was some stuff I didn't care about but I liked the background information I got.
