Women & Psychosis is an edited collection that examines the intersection of two marginalized identities, those of women and those deemed “psychotic”. Told from a multitude of perspectives, Women & Psychosis brings multidisciplinary thought to the subject, from psychiatrists and clinicians tofirst-person perspectives of the women themselves.

Marie Brown and Marilyn Charles have assembled a book that bridges different perspectives and disciplines to contextualize and complicate women’s experiences of psychosis through culture, the body, spirituality, and psychiatry. Reading Women and Psychosis itself becomes a polyphonic experience that changes how we understand what psychosis is, how it has been construed, and for women, with what consequences.
— Annie Rogers, Hampshire College

Not since Phyllis Chesler’s Women and Madness has there been a book that focuses on the important topic of psychosis in women. Kudos to Brown and Charles on this timely and welcomed collection of insightful essays, which I strongly recommend to all who are interested in learning more about the causes, manifestations, misunderstandings, and treatment of psychosis in women.
— Danielle Knafo, Long Island University – Post
