154 million people globally suffer depression, which is just the tip of the mental illness iceberg. The vast majority receive no treatment, due to an immense lack of specialists, resources, and understanding. Dr. Pamela Stephenson Connolly offers simple self-assessment tools and down-to-earth information on a wide range of mental health problems—clinical expertise minus the professional jargon. She explains everything that can go wrong with your mind, and sets out easy steps to start feeling better straight away. This guide covers everything from mood, personality, and sleep disorders to anxiety, trauma, and addiction, and it addresses the effect of childhood experiences on later life, and how to deal with issues from the past. This helpful, practical, and positive guide will inspire readers to make manageable steps towards a more joyful life.
