Product Description

Review

'Pamela Stephenson Connolly has written just about the perfect companion to the mind, mental health, mood and personality. Whether you care about what alcohol, drugs or abuse do to you, or you worry about your own full happiness or that of someone you love, this comprehensive book goes to the heart of that part of us we most neglect and yet which is most important to us - our thinking, feeling, hoping, doubting, questioning and often baffling minds. Authoritative without being technical, simple without being simplistic, this is about as useful as a book can be.'
-- Stephen Fry

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By J. M. Pickthall on 14 July 2012
Format: Hardcover
A reasonable and unpatronising layman's guide to mental health problems. A glaring flaw is that the author repeatedly recommends homeopathy as a treatment. Anyone actually using the mumbo-jumbo that is homeopathy for mental health problems instead of genuine mental health care may be putting themselves at risk.

Format: Hardcover
Avoid at all costs!!!!

Pamela Stephenson (a former comedienne famous for being Billy Connolly's wife) has put her name to a book that is a very flimsy 'encylopeadia' of mental health problems. She barely goes into detail on anything, supports her chapters with wishy washy 'personal stories', and repeats herself on every single page.

'Treat yourself to better mental health', says the title. 'Treat yourself'?? Better mental health is not like eating a bar of chocolate or buying a new dress, it's a serious issue affecting one in three people worldwide. This book is a disgrace, and is insulting to everyone suffering mental health problems because it belittles their illness by making light of it.

Pam's top tip for every single possible mental health problem? Go to the internet and Google for more info. Save yourself the time and money and do that instead of touching this book. Or simply buy a better book - written by someone with medical qualifications. A very insulting book.

Format: Hardcover
A good general purpose book on mental health but the advice is completely unrealistic since Mrs Pamela lives in a celebrity / money drenched world which has has immediate access to Dr's, Detox places, Shrinks, Health care which is not the case for the vast majority of the UK population using the NHS, who have to wait years, are overlooked, not diagnosed or incorrectly diagnosed and receiving little or no treatment
