Author Spotlight: Dr. John Rubisch


Part biography, part social commentary, and part cold case, this book is a compelling tale of the author’s descent into his son’s problems and the madness of the perpetual dysfunction of the country’s mental health system.

There is an astonishing level of detail taken from reports, evaluations, and the author’s own journal entries as he records his frustration, heartbreak, as well as a fair amount of humor. The Mental health system appears as a bureaucratic maze of incompetence and callousness more interested in collecting insurance payments and protecting itself from liability than in assisting others. The failure of the system in the case of the author’s son has disastrous results.
