A Drop of Sunshine by Aparna Sanyal
The story of Reshma Valliappan and her journey of eventual triumph over schizophrenia. Embodying a controversial and contrarian view towards recovery, it proposes that the only treatment that can work is the one wherein the ‘patient’ is encouraged and empowered to become an equal partner in the process of healing.
