Is There No Place on Earth for Me? by Susan Sheehan

Over 20 years ago this book deservedly won the Pulitzer. What's unfortunate is that the experiences detailed in the book remain true to this day. Namely, schizophrenics try to find effective and affordable help, yet a solution remains painfully elusive and instead, they go in and out of the "revolving doors" of the mental health system. Former New Yorker writer Sheehan writes engagingly and with an investigators keen eye (my favorite combo!). It reads like one of those engrossing New Yorker profiles except it doesn't end as quickly! I couldn't recommend this book more.
