Many families speak of the shame and embarrassment they feel when neighbors, schoolmates, and co-workers discover that someone in the family is schizophrenic, depressed, addicted to drugs, or abusive. You can imagine how Rebecca’s relatives might have felt when news of her wandering and disruptive behavior with the police was broadcast on the local media. For much of the twentieth century, the mental health profession in general was unsympathetic regarding the impact of psychological disorder on the family.

Think about Rebecca and the dramatic turn that her life took as she was shaken from her successful and stable existence. Not only was she devastated by the trauma of losing her family, but she lost her own identity and sense of purpose as well. By the time she reached out for help, she no longer had even the remnants of her former self. Think about how you would feel if everything you had were suddenly gone in the course of a few weeks—your family, your home, your identity. For many people who develop a serious psychological disorder, whatever the cause, the symptoms themselves are painful and possibly terrifying.
