Improv­ing Men­tal Health: Four Secrets in Plain Sight, offers four foun­da­tion­al truths and insights from a long career.
It is a book of patient sto­ries; his­tor­i­cal inci­dents and notable peo­ple; book, TV and film ref­er­ences; and (non-jar­gon) sci­ence report­ing to reveal and illu­mi­nate each of the four secrets I meant to pro­pose. It is writ­ten for prac­tic­ing psy­chi­a­trists, gen­er­al med­ical and pedi­atric doc­tors, psy­chol­o­gists, social work­ers, coun­selors, nurs­es, and trainees in all these dis­ci­plines to illus­trate what they could do more of in every­day prac­tice. It is also writ­ten for peo­ple with men­tal and addic­tive dis­or­ders and their loved ones about what they too can do to make an imme­di­ate dif­fer­ence in their health, men­tal health and lives.
