The severely and persistently mentally ill (SPMI) have been ignored, ridiculed, stigmatized, locked away in prisons, forgotten in hospitals, or left to wander the streets of our small and large cities. LUCY is a mother's story of her daughter's long struggle with a relentless brain disease-schizophrenia-that has no cure and gives no quarter. It's past time to recognize that Lucy and thousands like her need ASYLUM-places of care, protection, and refuge-in a world that's passed them by. "Lucy, the Anguish of Schizophrenia was revised in 2005. That book was used for four semesters in a mental health nursing lab course at the College of Nursing at Florida State University in Tallahassee. It is currently being used for the third year as part of the curriculum in psychiatric nursing at Chattanooga State Technical Community College in Chattanooga, TN and as recommended reading for graduate family therapy courses at the University of Maryland School of Nursing in Baltimore, MD."
