Written by well-known psychiatrist Patricia Casey, this book is aimed at the general public. Since mental health problems are common, and range in severity from transient stress reactions to those that impact seriously on day to day living, a book that helps people understand these conditions is required reading. There is also concern about the medicalization of day-to-day problems of living and this too is explored critically.
