What Causes A Person To Be Mentally Ill? Author Who Has Spent Decades Researching Topic Says He Has the Answer
Date:4/1/2010

Author and former journalist J. Michael Mahoney examines the root cause of mental illness from the inside in his book Schizophrenia: The Bearded Lady Disease. The book, which features quotations from hundreds of schizophrenics and related commentary from the author, comes to a very controversial conclusion.

Washington, DC (Vocus) April 1, 2010 -- Mankind has long searched for the cause and meaning of madness. Now, author and former Atlanta Journal Constitution journalist J. Michael Mahoney believes he has uncovered the cause and meaning of schizophrenia. Not surprisingly, Mahoney’s findings are generating controversial ripples across the mental health industry.

In Schizophrenia: The Bearded Lady Disease, Mahoney has compiled a comprehensive collection of over 600 quotations, each followed by an explanatory comment, which he says “point inexorably to the factor of unconscious bisexual conflict/gender confusion as forming the basic etiological role in all functional mental illness, including schizophrenia.”

Schizophrenia: The Bearded Lady Diseases provides what the author says are numerous documented case histories and theoretical constructs which clearly illuminate the origins of madness.

“Since madness has been the instigator of so much suffering and destruction in the world throughout the ages it is vitally important to uncover its mechanisms, for without doing so it will never be possible to eradicate it,” added Mahoney.
