Summary
The first biography of the ground breaking Australian doctor who discovered the first pharmacological treatment for mental illness. In 1948, there was no medication for bipolar illness. Sufferers from the illness would live their lives -- if they survived -- in and out of asylums accumulating life's wreckage around them. But late in 1948 that changed, when an Australian doctor, John Cade, discovered a treatment that has become the gold standard for bipolar illness -- lithium. Lithium is the penicillin story of mental health -- the first effective medication discovered for the treatment of a mental illness -- and it is, without doubt, Australia's greatest mental health story
