Too often, mental health care is postponed due to fears about what treatment might entail. Now Dr. James Morrison, a highly experienced practitioner with a no-nonsense approach, provides up-to-date facts and reliable advice about what might be wrong and what you can do about it. Explaining what really works for a wide range of psychological difficulties, Dr. Morrison gives frank and empathetic answers to all the common questions, plus many you may not even think of asking:

*Why do I have these symptoms and when will they get better?
*How safe are drugs like Prozac--and what about herbal remedies?
*What will I have to go through to find out what's wrong?
*How will I know if I've found a good therapist?
*How can I get the best care when my insurance and finances are limited?
*What can I expect in the months and years ahead?

Whether you feel trapped by depression or driven by anxiety, whether you're worried about an aging parent's memory loss or a spouse's mood swings, Straight Talk gives you the knowledge you need now and anticipates what you'll need in the future. It helps you make well-informed choices about this critical aspect of health and well-being--for yourself and those you love.

I used this book specifically for information about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and found that it offered some reassuring advice. Many other mental health topics are covered in this book, but since I did not read past OCD treatments, I can't speak for anything else in the book.
