Abstract:

Just as there are no two people who are exactly alike, there is no one way for the mind and body to function together. When certain behaviors begin to affect daily life in negative ways, however, a person may be diagnosed with a mental disorder or condition. These conditions, from Alzheimer disease to depression, learning disorders to schizophrenia, are already familiar to many people, yet they are difficult issues to grasp and speak about comfortable. In this book you will find an open discussion of nearly 100 of these sensitive topics, an the new understandings and treatments that scientists and doctors have recently developed. This book also includes other issues especially relevant to these conditions, such as homelessness and violence, to explore how behavior is influenced not only by body chemistry, but by our environments as well.
