I am a family practice physician treating a lot of stress, anxiety, and depression illnesses along with some bipolar and other problems. I typically buy several of these at a time and give them to patients or families trying to understand why they suffer from something they feel they should be able to beat. It gives a good review of the problems, medications, and non-medical therapies available. It makes my job easier through enlightening the patient and their family members. I recommend it for all pastors, counselors, and physicians to see a Christian look at psychiatric diagnoses.
Very insightful. A must read for all. Down to earth terms and examples that help you understanding mental illness. I read it twice cover to cover. I highlighted and underlined something in every chapter. Then I gave it to our physician as homework.
