The Royal Society of Medicine Your Guide to Schizophrenia is the patient's ultimate tool to understanding their illness, discovering invaluable advice, and empowering them to make informed choices and to regain control of their life. Written by the top UK expert in this field, and with the full support of the leading schizophrenia charity, this is an easy-to-read guide to schizophrenia. It explains the symptoms, diagnosis, treatment available, and ultimately how to live a fully functioning life with this misunderstood andoften frightening condition. The book firstly explains what schizophrenia is, but more importantly what is is NOT; talks about the diagnosis of the illness, the treatment you will receive, the support you can expect and living with such practicalities as being a parent with mental illness and theimpact on daily and social life. It demystifies such things as the mental health act, and provides full resources for carers. With user-friendly features such as 'Q and A' sections, 'Myths and Facts' boxes, explanations of key terms and case histories, this is a friendly and reassuring guide to acomplex yet treatable condition.
