This Book Will Change Your Mind About Mental Health: A Journey into the Heartland of Psychiatry, originally published as The Heartland: Finding and Losing Schizophrenia, is a non-fiction book written by Nathan Filer, a qualified mental health nurse and the author of the Costa Book Award-winning novel The Shock of the Fall. 

The book explores the world of mental health from a variety of perspectives, including those of patients, nurses, and psychiatrists. Filer argues that mental illness is not a disease in the same way that cancer or heart disease are, but rather a complex interplay of biological, psychological, and social factors. He challenges the stigma that often surrounds mental illness and calls for a more compassionate and understanding approach to treatment.

The book has been praised for its clear and engaging writing style, as well as for its thoughtful and nuanced exploration of a complex topic. It has been recommended by mental health professionals and readers alike as an important resource for anyone who wants to learn more about mental health.

Here are some of the key themes that Filer explores in the book:

  • The biological model of mental illness: Filer discusses the role of genetics and neurochemistry in mental illness, but he also argues that these factors are not the whole story.
  • The psychological model of mental illness: Filer explores the role of stress, trauma, and other psychological factors in mental illness.
  • The social model of mental illness: Filer discusses the role of poverty, inequality, and discrimination in mental illness.
  • The importance of compassion and understanding: Filer argues that mental illness is not a choice, and that people with mental illness deserve our compassion and understanding.
  • The recovery process: Filer discusses the different approaches to treatment for mental illness, and he emphasizes the importance of hope and recovery.
