These questions and a variety of depression and anxiety-related topics are discussed, in layman’s terms, in this comprehensive, brief (only sixty pages in length), and informative paperbound book. Written by two physicians, one a psychiatrist, from Johns Hopkins University Medical School, the text provides an overview of symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, genetic factors, and prognosis of anxiety and depression. Within the text, there are highlighted features on topics such as medications that can affect mood, warning signs of suicide in the elderly, new treatments for depression, and an update on the effectiveness of St. John’s wort. Technical terms, such as “intermittent claudication” and “postural hypotension,” are defined within the text.
included are practical guidance on selecting a therapist, lists of leading
psychiatric hospitals in the U.S., national mental health organizations
and support groups, and a glossary.
