Oh my godness, thank you soooo much!!! I haven't even sent the coffee yet, it is here with me and it is going into mail tomorrow :) This was such a great surprise, thanks a million! Looks very interesting, especially as I work taking care of people with schizophrenia.

This was a very interesting book, and in spite of the hard subject, I enjoyed it. As I work with people suffering schizophrenia, it was particularly interesting to get to know that the system for mental care is not very different in UK than here in Finland. Also the meidcations are the same, and I agree on writer's view of what medicines are most effective and what not.
In my work also the biggest challenge is how to get patients to take medicines, so it was positive to get to know that even people like Henry, who are so much against it, can change their minds.

Sending to lukutuoli next.

Thank you for fulfilling my wish, Chania! I also work in the field of psychiatry, so I'm really interested to read this one.

A note regarding The Suomi Challenge of the Finnish BC forum:
-page 54 ”Once we took him to Helsinki on the overnight train from Moscow...”

I liked the idea of the book written by Henry and his father Patrick together, but it confused me that Patrick couldn't decide whether to write a biography or a handbook of schizophrenia. Many Finnish young people seem to think that cannabis isn't a real drug, but Henry's story reminds of the fact that cannabis probably is an essential trigger for psychoses for people who are genetically prone to them.
