The review examines the work of Nathan Carlin on the stories of people with mental illnesses written by them in comparison with clinical information from the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. The appropriateness and correctness of the information for the public, people with these diseases, and specialists in the field of psychology and psychiatry were analyzed. Despite its seemingly purely psychiatric content, Nathan Carlin's work is an ethical-linguistic study of mental illness, which involves it in a wider field of discussions in the field of applied ethics, linguistic philosophy, and philosophy of psychology.
