Morri Namasté, who cofounded a forensic treatment agency dealing with violent and sexual offenders and provided services to those clients in an outpatient setting, has completed his new book “Bethesda Daze”: an exciting and emotive retelling of several of the encounters he had while working in a psychiatric hospital.
Morri writes, “Bethesda Daze is a look behind the curtain, detailing the experiences of a young mental-health worker working in a private psychiatric hospital in the mid-seventies. These are stories of successes, of failures, of mistakes, and of personal and professional growth. Bethesda Hospital was a place where people gained perspective on life’s challenges. It was a place where, at times, it was difficult to see the differences between staff and patients.
“The mid-seventies were a time when there were many psychiatric facilities. Patients came voluntarily and stayed for weeks and months. The job of the staff was to develop and maintain a therapeutic attitude that was supportive, challenging, and helpful. Guided by professionals, primarily psychiatrists and psychiatric nurses, each patient had an individualized treatment plan. The staff promoted an environment of trust where difficult issues could be addressed in a safe setting.”
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Morri Namasté’s moving tale will educate and astound readers as they peer behind the veil of a career that is arguably one of the most fascinating out there.
