Davis May is Mental Health Awareness Month and a great time to explore the many writers who write on diverse topics related to mental health and mental illness.

    Illness narratives are a way for a person affected by an illness to make sense of his or her experiences. They typically follow one of several set patterns: restitution, chaos, or quest narratives. In the restitution narrative, the person sees the illness as a temporary detour. The primary goal is to return permanently to normal life and normal. Autobiographical accounts of mental illness have for centuries provided a fascinating window on the world of madness for those fortunate enough never to have sojourned there themselves. Even with all the advanced brain-imaging and other technologies of medicine, the subjective experience of mental illness can be conveyed only by those who have lived it.

"Kleinman infuses the theme with fresh insights and 'empathic witnessing,' through the use of narrative, the stories of pain and suffering that give form and meaning to the experience of illness." ― Elinor Lenz, Los Angeles Times Book Review "A major contribution to the care techniques for the chronically ill."―Reviews: 1 day ago  Illness narratives – accounts of sickness written by patients, medical professionals, or caregivers – are, by their very nature, difficult to write and to analyse.

The seminal books framing the project including Arthur Kleinman’s The Illness Narratives: Suffering, Healing, and The Human Condition which first pointed out that such stories – of those who, as Susan Sontag memorably said, hold citizenship in the kingdom of the ill’, for ‘illness is the night-side of life’ – beat the bounds of the human condition.

By directing attention to the aspect of suffering, Kleinman, in his book Illness Narratives (), has given the narrative concept a broader defini- tion. For Kleinman the narrative is the form in which patients shape and give voice to their suffering. To answer these questions, Ann Jurecic turns to major works on pain and suffering by Susan Sontag, Elaine Scarry, and Eve Sedgwick and reads these alongside illness narratives by Jean-Dominique Bauby, Reynolds Price, and Anne Fadiman, among others.

Illness as Narrative seeks to draw wider attention to this form of life writing and to argue for new approaches to both literary criticism and teaching narrative. Jurecic calls for a practice. Frank's book is concise, clearly written, and introduces a number of stimulating concepts and terms to the study of illness narratives.

This book provides refreshing new. It carries forward the important cases made by Anne Hunsaker Hawkins, Arthur W. Frank, and Rita Charon that illness narratives are valuable to medicine, contemporary culture, and individual lives. But it more rigorously addresses questions of how to respond to and teach the literature of suffering.

The tale of complaints becomes the text that is to be decoded by the practitioner cum diagnostician.”14Kleinman’s anthropologic training then led him to recognize that illness narratives have to be contextualized: “Each patient brings to the practitioner a story.

Suffering is conveyed as a story and clinicians can encourage healing by co-constructing patients’ illness stories. By addressing the inevitable existential conflicts uncovered in patients’ narratives and helping them edit their stories to promote acceptance and meaning, suffering can be transcended.About the Book.

Inspired by the possibilities of narrative, the essays in this direction-setting volume present stories drawn from a range of ethnographic contexts. Stories of illness and healing are often arresting in their power, and they can illuminate aspects of practices and experiences surrounding illness that might otherwise be neglected.MV: False account of mental illness or mental distress are not as frequent as accounts of physical illnesses, but there is a whole chapter in Feldman and Yates’s book on what they call “mental masquerades”, the paradox of disguising a real mental disorder, i.e.

factitious disorder, through the features of another mental condition.
