If you feel that a friend or loved one has a problem and needs professional help, this step-by-step guide will give you the tools to approach, engage, and support him or her.

Just about everyone knows a relative, friend, or coworker who is exhibiting signs of emotional or behavioral turmoil. Yet figuring out how to reach out to that person can feel insurmountable. We know it is the right thing to do, yet many of us hesitate to take action out of fear of conflict, hurt feelings, or damaging the relationship. Others have tried to talk with the person, but he or she just won't listen.

Through a rich combination of user-friendly tools and real-life stories, Mark S. Komrad, M.D., offers you step-by-step assistance and support that will help you help your loved one. He will assist you in determining when professional help is needed, choosing when and how to make the first approach, gathering allies, selecting the right professional, and supporting your loved one as he or she begins and continues the necessary therapeutic process. Included are scripts based on Dr. Komrad's work with his own patients, designed to help you anticipate next steps and arm you with the tools to respond constructively and compassionately.

You will also find the guidance and information you need to understand mental illness and get past the stigma still associated with it, so that you can engage and support your loved one with insight and compassion in his or her journey toward emotional stability and health.
