Dr Stuart Jeanne Bramhall

Dr. Stuart Jeanne Bramhall was born and grew up in Milwaukee and graduated from Mount Sinai School of Medicine in 1973. She had a private psychiatric practice – in northern California and Seattle – between 1978 and 2002. Since 2002, when she emigrated to New Zealand for political reasons, she has worked as a Consultant Psychiatrist for the New Zealand National Health Service.

She is also a single mother, with a daughter born in 1981. The following year she became a community activist, owing to a growing concern about the legacy of political corruption and environmental degradation she was leaving for future generations. She worked for two years with the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador, for ten years with the African American Museum Support Committee, and for fourteen years with Physicians for a National Health Program.

Other than
Last Respects, a one-act play produced in England in 1974, The Most Revolutionary Act: Memoir of an American Refugee is Bramhall’s first published work. Bramhall closed her twenty-five year Seattle practice in 2002 to live and work in New Zealand. Her recent memoir describes how she came to make this life changing decision, following fifteen years of intense government harassment between 1987 and 2002.

She retired from psychiatry in June 2010 to become a full time activist and writer. She writes a left-green-feminist political commentary blog and serves on the National Executive of the Green Party of Aotearoa New Zealand.
The Most Revolutionary Act has just won a 2011 Allbooks Review Editor’s Choice award. Bramhall has also written a young adult novel, The Battle for Tomorrow: a Fable, about to be released.
