“Labels Belong on Soup Cans, Not Our Children”: a heartfelt and informational cautionary tale about the surprisingly common misdiagnosis of medical conditions as psychological disorders. “Labels Belong on Soup Cans, Not Our Children” is the creation of published author Susan McAndrew, a happily married Pennsylvania native who grew up working on her family’s dairy farm.

An eleven-day confinement at a psychiatric hospital, involuntary commitment trial, eventual testing for the actual physical illness, and the ultimately simple cure are all documented to explain why this young girl should not have to live with a lifelong label of mental illness. This story suggests that decisions made in fear are often poor ones.

McAndrew shares, “Doctors should not be afraid to tell their patients that they do not know the answer to something, and parents should not be afraid of questioning the decisions of health-care professionals.”

The nearly fatal mistake was thwarted with the support of family, friends, open-minded, true professionals, and most of all, with divine intervention.

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Susan McAndrew‘s new book is intended to encourage and empower parents and caregivers to become informed advocates for their loved ones when faced with the pain and fear of a health crisis.
