Mental disorders disrupt our families and communities, yet the families and friends of the more than fifty million people a year who are diagnosed with a mental illness have nowhere to turn for authoritative, comprehensive, can-do advice about what to do. The Family Guide to Mental Health Care is the first comprehensive resource for families struggling with a loved one's mental illness. In it families can find the answers they need about understanding a variety of disorders, assessing whether doctors are really helping them, and getting the right treatment. From depression to schizophrenia, from Ativan to Zoloft, from the first signs of a problem to successful help, this book walks readers through everything they need to know, and do, to help their loved ones. In these pages, a psychiatrist who knows the mental health system inside and out will help family members who come into doctors' offices every day, asking, "What should I do?"
