Overview

More than 27 million adults and 7.5 million children in the United States have a diagnosable mental disorder--more than the combined total of people with cancer, heart disease, and lung disorders.  This book is the indispensable guide to mental health and mental disorders that they and their families need.  It offers lucid presentations of these conditions in systematic form: what each is, signs and symptoms, causes, diagnosis, treatment (therapy, medications, self-help), risks and complications, impact on relationships, and prognosis.  Enhancing the book's usefulness are checklists, vivid case histories, and a special feature for each disorder: the diagnostic criteria of the American Psychiatric Association's definitive Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition, known as DSM-IV.

"A treasure house ... this title has no equal in breadth, depth, or timeliness."--Library Journal

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
An extensive reference guide to mental health and mental disorders. (June)
Library Journal
The coauthors, a professional writer and her psychiatrist husband, fully cover the field of mental health, including discussions of major disorders and a range of treatments, from talking therapy to medication and electroshock. Using criteria from the DSM-VI (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, American Psychiatric Pr., 1994. 4th ed.), the Haleses provide, in readable form, more information than most nonpsychiatric physicians have on these topics. The chapter on medication will be helpful to nonmedical professionals (e.g., psychologists, social workers) as well as patients. Sections on hypnosis, family therapy, posttraumatic stress, suicide, sleep, violence, aging, self-help, sex, and alcohol, among others, make this a treasure-house for journalists and students as well as families of the mentally ill. Not formatted as an encyclopedia, this guide instead offers chapters broken down into short paragraphs with subheads or boxed descriptions of specific problems so that one can quickly isolate the relevant materials. Essential for all libraries, this title has no equal in breadth, depth, or timeliness.-E. James Lieberman, George Washington Univ. Sch. of Medicine, Washington, D.C.

    Caring For The Mind -- Comprehensive Guide to Mental Health

    Caring For The Mind is an excellent reverse book for the people I train as Family Development Specialists. They work with families to allow them to take control of their own lifes and become more self-sufficient. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs to understand clearly what the issues and barriers people face in taking care of themselves and their families.
