SYNOPSIS: Girl, Interrupted depicts a young adult, living in the ’60s, named Susanna, who recently had attempted suicide with a bottle of aspirin and vodka, at least, that’s what her father’s psychologist friend and the other medical professionals insist. She doesn’t find herself to need professional help, however, her parents do, and because she is no longer a minor, she has to commit herself. Once she has done so, she cannot take herself back out until the staff believes that her state has improved. At this hospital for mental health, she is included in a group of women who have a cocktail of diagnoses from an eating disorder, body dysmorphia, sociopathy, compulsive lying, depression, anxiety, Tourette’s, schizophrenia, and borderline personality disorder. It brings to the forefront the causes of these personality ‘dysfunctions’ in the form of life experiences that had occurred to the patients and also questions what abnormality is in the eyes of mental health and diverse personality traits.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
