Complete Mental Health
The Go-To Guide for Clinicians and Patients
Complete Mental Health is a handy desk reference for the clinician, and an illuminating overview of common mental health problems for anyone.
John Ingram Walker takes the reader through causes, methods of diagnosis, and recognized best treatment options. He offers therapists a clear path through the complexities of psychiatric diagnosis. Doctors and therapists will learn how to recognize the symptoms of several mental health concerns that commonly bring clients to their offices: depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, schizophrenia and psychosis, dementia, substance abuse, personality disorders, sexual dysfunction and sleep disorders. At the same time, individuals from all walks of life will find here the tools they need to identity the warning signs signaling that they might be suffering from one of these conditions, and how to choose and get the most out of treatment.
