Jesse Button M.D., a calm obsessive-compulsive with an insatiable desire to learn and create, has completed his new book “Psychiatry, What It's All About: Memoirs from 50 Years of Practice”: a useful work that provides background information about the author as well as the field of psychiatry.

Author Jesse Button M.D. feels that almost anyone can be helped if they need help, and he will work to find a solution. His hobbies are gardening, yard work, building whatever is needed, and enjoying working on two antique automobiles. He always chooses the shortest distance between two points, emphasizes efficiency, and has little tolerance for lies or dishonesty. He had the opportunity to relate with the top professionals in American psychiatry in the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry and as a career teacher awardee at the National Institute of Mental Health. He served in the American Medical Association and the American Psychiatry Association. He has published and used most of the approved methods of care in most of the possible settings in psychiatry, serving as chairman or chief of his department for most of his career. He feels there is no greater thrill or satisfaction than leading a severely ill person to wellness and did not intend to ever retire.

Author Jesse Button M.D. writes, “Throughout my career in psychiatry, I have been asked many times why I chose to go into psychiatry and what kind of patients I saw. Also, people wonder if the patients I saw in private practice were different from those seen in the Armed Services. I saw little difference in the patients seen in private practice compared to those seen in the Armed Services. I felt those in the Armed Services responded a little better because they tended to follow instruction better, and this is partly because they thought they had to.”

He continues, “I have absolutely no interest in finding fault with anyone or blaming anyone for anything in this book. I see my job as being an observer, trying to evaluate some facts to help those seeking my help so they can adapt and adjust in the most appropriate way for a more positive outcome in their situation. Some judges have asked me about reducing the risk to themselves in divorce actions. That can be a touchy situation, but if the judges act in a way to make it appear as though they are punishing either party, they will blame the judge, which is obvious. I have seen a number of men who felt the judges have really been unfair and taken everything from them, creating an angry response. At least some people in governing roles try to make good decisions. I had a friend who was a secretary in the state office, and they would frequently consult me on issues of mental health and treatment when in session. One time, a judge ordered a man to come see me for treatment after the judge had inappropriately confined him to a state hospital. That is unusual because the judge never consulted me, but the man decided he wanted to continue to see me.”

Published by Page Publishing, Jesse Button’s insightful work presents the author’s refreshing perspective on the field of psychiatry.
