Sanatorium, mental ward, psychiatric hospital - they're all the same. Places where the infirm, the crazy, and the certifiable go for treatment... Or what passes for 'treatment'. This is a collection of stories of bedlam taking place within the padded walls of an institution. Stories of experiments gone wrong, patients revolting against the staff, or even the deranged doings of those charged with giving care. They are sick, depraved, and atrocious - the type of stories that rarely reach the light of day. Are you brave enough to crawl inside the minds of the twelve authors who wrote these tales... Or are you afraid you'll be locked up for peeking?

Echoes of the Past... In places where unspeakable atrocities occurred sometimes 'something' lingers, stuck between the worlds of the living and the dead. Those who believe in the grey area behind the veil will tell you that those places can become eternal cages that hold the souls of the deceased captive. 'Mental Ward: Echoes of the Past' is a collection of twelve such stories; tales of hauntings taking place in asylums. The places where the crazed, the insane, and sometimes the different were hidden away from society's view. Follow the winding path crafted by the talented, and in some cases, twisted imaginations of the storytellers who would taint your peaceful world with their echoes of the past.

A dank basement, shadow filled hallways, the deep echo of a metal latch being thrown while faint screams are heard... These are the things you might experience in a place where the unspeakable happens, where conscientious action and moral turpitude turn a blind eye in the interest of advancing one's own personal pursuits in the most deranged and unjustifiable manner. The type of place where power corrupts, and depravity runs rampant among those imbued with it. A place where the unfortunate are abandoned to the devices of those who convince themselves their actions are in the best interest of science. Mental Ward: Experiments is a collection of ten short stories that demonstrate the worst of humanity's ambition in the interest of 'civilized' advancement. Step into a world where sanity is left behind, and horror is what the doctor ordered! *This book is a collection of similarly themed yet varying fictitious short stories from multiple authors.

• Applicable not just to those with mental health issues, but for churches and the church at large Christ on the Psych Ward is a series of reflections on the intersections among mental health, faith, and ministry. Beginning with his own experience, Finnegan- Hosey shares ways communities of faith can be present with those suffering from mental illness and crises. Weaving together personal testimony, theological reflection, and practical ministry experience, he offers a message of hope for those suffering and for friends and faith communities struggling to care for them. Ultimately, his journey of recovery and healing reveals the need for a theological understanding of a vulnerable God, important not solely for ministry with those with mental health struggles, but offering a hopeful vision forward for the church.

The Bumpy Road: A Memoir of Culture Clash Including Woodstock, Mental Hospitals, and Living In Mexico

Reading The Bumpy Road promotes self-examination and encourages transformation. Everyone lives a personal “hero’s journey”. The Bumpy Road shows how culture clash is a muse for creative transformation. It tells the story of childhood followed by adolescent confusion. A boy struggles to become a man by buying into institutions that did not work for him--a marriage to a woman, whose entire self-concept was tied to “the relationship”, and as a science student in academia where success is about publish or perish: lies, back-stabbing, and the old boys' club. The 60’s culture came and personal chaos ensued. Relying on mental institutions to correct the evils of the aforementioned institutions created new problems instead. But the human spirit is resilient. The Bumpy Road details how the habit of going to the hospital for help was broken, and a new artistic identity replaced the old one. Primed for seizing cultural diversity opportunities, new struggles and successes were encountered in Mexico.
