Twenty percent of adult Americans—one in five—will experience a mental illness during their lifetime that is severe enough to require treatment, and many others have problems that prevent them from enjoying their lives on a daily basis.

With more than 2,000 entries, The A to Z of Mental Health is an up-to-date reference covering all aspects of general mental health topics. This accessible guide sorts through a maze of professional jargon to provide incisive definitions of theories, syndromes, symptoms, treatments, and contemporary issues, in language that everyone can understand, bringing readers the most up-to-date information on this subject.

Entries include:
  • Adoption
  • Depression
  • Domestic violence
  • Environmental hazards
  • Holistic medicine
  • Life-change rating scale
  • Nervous habits
  • Performance anxiety
  • Pharmacology
  • Reflexology
  • St. John's wort
  • Type A personality
  • The workplace.
