Description: Lauren Slater, a brilliant writer and a young therapist, chronicles her remarkable personal and professional journeys in this extraordinary memoir of her work with mentally and emotionally ill patients. Closing the distance between "us" and "them", Slater transports the reader into a country where patients are suffering from schizophrenia and depression. As the young psychologist responds to, reflects on, and re-creates her interactions with the dispossessed, she offers a deeper understanding of the complexities of the human mind and spirit. And then, in a stunning final chapter, the psychologist confronts herself, when she is asked to treat a young woman, bulimic and suicidal, who is on the same ward where Slater herself was once such a patient.

Like An Unquiet Mind by Kay Redfield Jamison, Listening to Prozac by Peter Kramer, and Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen, Welcome to My Country is a beautifully written, captivating, and revealing book, an unusual personal and professional memoir that brings readers closer to understanding themselves, one another, and the human condition.
