    1. I was so looking forward to reading this but once I picked it up it didn t take long for me to reach my limit of tolerance The stories are not considered and explored in a way that I found interesting or satisfying and instead it just feels like Cunningham is in pedantic lecture mode Raina s GR review got to a lot of my feelings about it, but she is generous in her assessment, which I appreciate Here is a quote from her review Generally, though, this felt very didactic to me The anecdotes or st [...]

    2. This book is tiny 175 pages, read it in one hour It s like a beginner s guide to the most common mental illnesses and even though it s on lots of best graphic novelly things which is why I got it, since I m an ignorant blunderer in the garden of comix, I wasn t knocked out We get chapters on dementia, self harming, depression, personality disorder, schizophrenia and bipolar A definition, the currently recommended treatment, a quick character sketch of a patient encountered by the author, and on [...]

    3. Published on my book blog.I got this book as a birthday gift from two dear friends of mine We share many interests, and the workings of the human mind is one of them, so they figured this book would be a good match for me.It s a good premise The author spent a few years working as a health care assistant in a psychiatric hospital and draws on his experiences to tell short stories about mental illnesses Unfortunately, I didn t like it as much I thought I would I was hoping for an insightful look [...]

    4. I picked up this book and I didn t put it down until I d finished it Luckily, it s a really quick read I was able to fully appreciate the graphic form of these stories I admire the author for trying to describe mental illnesses to potential readers who might not otherwise understand them I think, given the brevity of the work, he does a reasonably good job accomplishing what he intended to do It s hard for me to determine if readers knowing nothing about mental illnesses will be even close to ad [...]

    5. The concept of this book sounded interesting, but it wasn t quite what I was expecting I had expected 11 stories about various patients the author artist had worked with as a psychiatric nurse Instead I got a brief overview of several types of mental illness depression, schizophrenia, bipolar, etc with several examples within each chapter not full stories, but rather I once worked with a patient who It read like a textbook in graphic novel form, telling about symptoms and stressing how mental i [...]

    6. I m really glad this is shelved in nonfiction in my library system, because it totally is Although the subtitle prepares you for short stories, they re really just short chapters discussing a different illness or illness adjacent issue The art is really lovely, don t get me wrong As Cunningham says in the last chapter, he s especially great with cityscapes Generally, though, this felt very didactic to me The anecdotes or stories of Cunningham s experience generally take up less than half of each [...]

    7. understand the trials of both sufferers and those connected to them That pretty much sums up the book Its a series of tales told by some guy who worked with the mentally ill He wants the mentally healthy to appreciate mentally ill people, not be afraid of them, and accept them That s a noble cause, but it makes for a dull book and the book doesn t go beyond that attempt I suffered from mental illness psychosis, for lack of a precise term, or lack of wanting to elaborate for a short period a few [...]

    8. I wish I had never touched this book I AM so disgusted and offended by this book that I can t even I will not dignify this book, with ANY stars I wish you could give negative stars here in GR I m literally shaking with fury when writing this review I have a few loved ones afflicted with mental illness and would never like to see them represented this way It s crude, dehumanizing and degrading I had been very interested in books about Mental Health for a while when I read this book I was looking [...]

    9. the chapter on bipolar disorder made me laugh but only because I absolutely get it a staff nurse who I worked with on a psychiatric ward believed that you could always tell who the bipolar patients were because they were the patients who would be unable to walk past the office without coming in to explain whatever was on their mind however trivial that might be did you know a cow has four stomachs thanks for telling me just what I wanted to know it s to help aid with digestion hard to digest, gr [...]

    10. A collection of short, graphic stories about working with the mentally ill Really awful drawing style even though he showed signs of potential with the chapter on famous people with mental illness, which makes it even worse I just hate that crude, blunt drawing style that seems to be popping up all over the place lately Anyway The stories were all pretty unpleasant and didn t really open my eyes to any issues of mental health I wouldn t really recommend this to anyone.

    11. This book has the potential to be a great collection but it doesn t quite get there The descriptions of the illnesses read like simplistic medical definitions I think this would have been a lot better if each of the stories were written from the perspective of someone with the illness instead of someone who oversaw somebody suffering from it.

    12. Not exactly what I d been hoping for I d been hoping for some insightful looks at people with mental illness, but this isn t really that Most of the chapters are really superficial And I m not a big fan of the art style I suppose it s meant to read as simple, but it just looks simplistic, and amateurish.

    13. One of the most beautiful comic graphic novel I have ever read It is informative, sensitively done and very personal It stays with you long after you read it I hope this guy keeps making comics, he is one to follow

    14. This book is based on the authors experience working in different psychiatric wards as a nursing assistant I enjoyed learning about all the types of mental illness, but felt the book lacked depth regarding facts relating to all the different type of psychiatric disorders.

    15. A personal and quite revealing look at mental illness and how people endure or suffer through them.Mental illness is a serious business, and anything and anyone that treats those who suffer from them with dignity and respect deserves praise The art conveys the feelings very well Recommended.

    16. Braden BoudreauMs O Brien YettoEnglish 9H1 23 18 Review of Pyschiatric Tales by Darryl CunninghamPyschiatric Tales by Darryl Cunningham is a graphic novel of him telling stories about mental illness, he used to work as an assistant on a psychiatric ward for many years and is also a cartoonist so he made this book to take away the ignorance on mental illness and show how it can affect people Onto the graphic novel itself, I thought it was a very well done novel and I enjoyed it a lot, it covers a [...]

    17. I read Psychiatric Tales by Darryl Cunningham In this book Cunningham talks about his experiences working in a psychiatric hospital He shares information and experiences from the different types of wards that he worked in I enjoyed this book because Cunningham uses it at a platform to educate the public about different types of mental illness and put to rest different myths and stereotypes that many people think of when they hear about a mental illness For example, Cunningham explains that peopl [...]

    18. I read Psychiatric Tales by Darryl Cunningham This was great I usually don t like to read books, but I didn t want to put this book down This book is about events that occured while the author was working in a hospital for mental illness.I enjoyed how the format of the book was a graphic novel This makes the book entertaining and pleasing to the eye in my opinion I feel like the points that Darryl Cunningham was trying to make in his book were better understood since there were pictures I also [...]

    19. I was initially apprehensive about reading this book, since the cover and the blurb gave the impression that it might take a voyeuristic sensationalistic tone and recount the stories of mentally ill people in a way that was intended to be unsettling However, I found the author s narrative voice honest and understanding, and it s clear that his intention with this book is to debunk false beliefs about mental illness and humanize those affected by it As someone experienced with mental illness and [...]

    20. This is really simplistic and at times repetitive I was hoping for humor and insight I either wanted there to be personal stories, or exploration of mental illness itself Overall it was a bit bland and shallow, but I still read it all the way through because it s likee ambient music of comic books It was like going on a slow meandering walk through someone else s brain Of course, as someone who worked at a pharmacy for eight years, none of these stories shocked me But if you re not used to de [...]

    21. Patly stark and empathetic I wished each vignette were much longer Cunningham says a lot with very few words.

    22. A book about mental illness This book shortly tells you about dementia, schizoprenia, depression and so on The story is kinda repititive in each chapter If you have a zero knowledge about mental disorder like me, then it is okay for you But if you want to expand your knowledge in this field, I think this book is not suitable for you

    23. At first I wasn t into the drawing style, but it grew on me and I appreciated the insights the author had into different mental illnesses It was a good mix of personal and clinical observations, and I think it ll stick with me.

    24. Psychiatric Tales is a graphic novel about the experiences that a mental health nurse had while he worked in a psychiatric ward The book is divided into eleven sections, each with its own topic regarding mental illness I am very interested in the topic of mental illness and have previously taken two courses on abnormal psychology in college and have done other reading on the topic That being said, this book didn t tell me any new information, except for the few unique cases that the author perso [...]

    25. Psychiatric Tales is an informational graphic novel about the author, Darryl Cunningham s, life and experiences as a psychiatric nurse in a hospital He opens the novel with the world s current views on mental illness, and how it is often overlooked and misjudged He composes the rest of the novel as a series of short stories explaining a variety of mental illnesses in each section The book describes dementia, self harm, depression, anti social personality disorder, schizophrenia, and others I fou [...]

    26. Since it s a graphic novel, I was able to finish this in one sitting Fascinating true account of a mental health aide s experiences on an acute ward in England, along with brief tales of famous people, as well as the author s own tale of suffering The book obviously serves to try to destigmatize mental illness and show it is just as serious and, often, fatal as Cancer or HIV Indeed, these illnesses are a health problem in the brain which effects the whole body The problem is, many afflictions ar [...]

    27. Mad, sad, and dangerous to not know.Cunningham used to work in a psychiatric hospital, and many of the things he saw there left deep impressions on him In fact, they brought up a lot of issues in his own life that he then felt the need to work on Part of that process was creating this book, a work he had started and then put aside, only to revive it after positive feedback online These short tales, which focus on various mental illnesses as well as practices such as cutting and other self harm, [...]

    28. My friend read this book before i did and they was she described it made it sound interesting It was about this man that worked in different wards of a phychiatric hospital He covered wards that varied from dimentia to cutting I could relate to the dementia ward because I work in an Assistant Living Facility in Salem I serve elderly people meals The ones i serve have either early stages of dementia or they are far into the disease They scenerios he talked about were ones that I see whenever I go [...]

    29. A former nurse in a psychiatric hospital relates true tales of encounters with depression, schizophrenia, dementia, suicide, self harming, and anti social personality disorder Cunningham does a great job of de stigmatizing mental illness and explaining the various maladies in lay terms One minor quibble this book is good to point out that many celebrities and artists have struggled with mental illnesses and nevertheless left amazing world changing legaciesbut I, personally, would like to hear ab [...]

    30. What I rather enjoyed about this book is the simplicity of the language There s not much in term of psychological terms as the book is aimed to establish a dialogue with ordinary readers, who one way or another have a false understanding of the mental illnesses that currently shape and affect our society Depression, self harm, bipolar disorder and dementia among others are examined in short chapters, sewn together from different episodes from the author s experience Mental patients have been reg [...]
