About the book
In The Heartland Nathan Filer, mental health nurse and award winning writer, takes us on a journey into the psychiatric wards he once worked on. He also invites us to spend time with world-leading experts, and with some extraordinary people who share their own stories – true stories – about living with this strange and misunderstood condition.
Along the way, he helps us open our minds to new ways of thinking about mental health, about each other, and about ourselves. The Heartland debunks myths, challenges assumptions and offers fresh insight into what it means to be mad.
And what it means to be human.
