A Network Contract - A Tool for Safe Recovery

Written and inspired by our good friend Laila’s personal experiences, A Network Contract shows “it is just as feasible to write a contract regulating the handling of psychological ill health as the handling of anything else in society."

“The book…carries a strong message to all of us from a very brave woman. As a user of psychiatry, she had the courage to be frank and open with regard to her situation; critical, yet hopeful too, for the psychiatric care of which she has partaken for many years. The model she describes in this book makes it possible to act quickly if there are signs of a relapse.”
