The Price Of Silence : A Mom's Perspective on Mental Illness Paperback / softback


The author of I Am Adam Lanza s Mother speaks out about mental illness.

Like most of the nation, Liza Long spent December 14, 2012, mourning the victims of the Newtown shooting.

As the mother of a child with a mental illness, however, she also wondered: What if my son does that someday?

The emotional response she posted on her blog went viral, putting Long at the center of a passionate controversy.

Now, she takes the next step. Powerful and shocking, The Price of Silence looks at how society stigmatizes mental illness including in children and the devastating societal cost.

In the wake of repeated acts of mass violence, Long points the way forward."
