A-Z Good Guide to Mental Health: You Don't Have to Be Famous to Have Manic Depression
Jeremy Thomas & Dr Tony Hughes
Our mental health is at times robust, at times incredibly vulnerable, and always essential to our very being. This informative and entertaining insider's guide is a rich and truthful exploration of mental health - informative but at the same time full of humour, candour and hope. The unique combination of dialogue between the authors - one a sufferer from manic depression, the other his doctor - alongside a comprehensive A-Z section, provides a fascinating insight into the subject, and contains a wealth of information on prevention, treatments, and advice on how and where to get help. Topics include: the symptoms of illness, denial, relationships, self-esteem, suicide, creativity, alcoholism and addiction; handled with warmth and humanity throughout.
Ultimately, Jeremy Thomas and Tony Hughes hope that The A-Z Guide to Good Mental Health will simply help a few people in the same boat.
