Understanding Mental Disorders is a companion volume to the DSM-5 designed specifically for the general public -- and it is a wonderful companion volume that nonphysicians, especially patients and families of the mentally ill, will appreciate. The writing is exceptionally clear, and the absence of jargon that often adds mysterious complexities makes this volume valuable. -- Steven S. Sharfstein, M.D., President and CEO, Sheppard Pratt, and Clinical Professor and Vice Chair Psychiatry, University of Maryland,Baltimore, MD. * Journal of Psychiatric Practice Vol. 22, No. 2 *
This is an outstanding book that not only clearly and cleverly explains the presentation and management of all diagnosable mental health disorders but also offers self-help tips and offers up-to-date resources to promote mental wellbeing. It is a great read for anyone interested or affected by mental illness and also for professionals wanting an easy-to-read comprehensive guide to DSM- 5 (R) without complicated language and with tricky concepts well-explained. * BMA Medical Book Awards 2016 *
