"The guidance to family and friends is clear and concise...it suggests that sufferers can have an impact on the move towards improved health, rather than feeling they 'can't do anything' and experiencing the attendant feelings of despair. It should be available in every GP practice!." (JO BRAND, comedian, writer and former psychiatric nurse)

Having recently qualified as a Mental Health First Aid Instructor, this book is going to be a great way of learning more about mental health conditions, hints and tips for family & friends, the scientific 'stuff' as well as a section by a subject expert. A really easy format and style.

What a pity Dr Raj Persaud was discredited, and has not made a comeback - he gave very wise advice.

An excellent handbook for the general reader from the Royal College of Psychiatrists in the United Kingdom. It discusses all of the more common disorders of the mind and many of those less common. Each chapter is contributed by an expert on the illness discussed and begins with a brief story of a typical case. Most chapters share a common format including "What is it?" What does it feel like?" "What can be done to help?" "Self-help" and "Tips for families and friends." Each chapter concludes with a list of support organizations, websites and further reading. Later chapters discuss more general problems such as: alcohol, domestic violence, caring, therapies and medication. The writing is lucid and accessible, unnecessary technical terms are avoided and the focus is on practical assistance. I highly recommend this book for libraries, support organizations and anyone that needs a broad view of current mental health diagnoses and issues.
