Most of us know a friend, coworker, neighbor, or loved one suffering from a mental illness. This book provides valuable insight on what to expect from an illness and its treatment -- and will help readers recognize symptoms, know when to seek help, and get the right care. Based on the latest fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders -- known as DSM-5® -- Understanding Mental Disorders identifies mental disorders by symptoms, describes treatment, and explores special needs or concerns. These disorders include depression, schizophrenia, childhood-related disorders such as ADHD and autism spectrum disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and bipolar disorder, among others. The common language for diagnosing mental illness used in DSM-5® for mental health professionals has been adapted into clear, concise descriptions of disorders for nonexperts. In addition to specific symptoms for each disorder, readers will find:? Risk factors and warning signs? Related disorders? Ways to cope? Tips to promote mental health? Personal stories? Key points about the disorders and treatment options? A special chapter dedicated to treatment essentials and ways to get help ? Helpful resources that include a glossary, list of medications and support groups

Understanding Mental Disorders is designed to combat mental illness through education and early recognition and treatment. It helps those who may be struggling with mental health problems, as well as those who want to help others achieve mental health and well-being.

Understanding Mental Disorders: Your Guide to DSM-5® is an indispensable reference for all who are affected by mental illness.
