About the book
Author Mark Rubinstein is the former clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at Cornell University Medical College and an attending psychiatrist at New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York City.
In his new book, Rubinstein opens the door and takes the reader deep into the world of mental illness. From the chaos of a psychiatric emergency room to the bowels of a maximum security prison, the stories range from bizarre to poignant and the people from noble to callously uncaring.
Bedlam’s Door depicts the challenges mental illness poses for patients, their families, health-care professionals, and our society. And more importantly, it demystifies the subject while offering real hope for the future. It illustrates that no matter how strange some behavior may seem, mental illness can be understood, if attention is paid. And though every person’s life story is unique, we are all more alike than different and are linked by the richness of our shared human experience.
