Too often, mental health care is postponed due to fears about what treatment might entail. This comprehensive guide gives frank and authoritative answers to all the questions typically raised by individuals and their family members - plus some they might not even think to ask. Explaining what really works when treating psychological difficulties, leading psychiatrist and author Dr. James Morrison shares knowledge gleaned from years of clinical practice. Presented are the pros and cons of available medications - including details on safety and side effects - as well as psychotherapy and alternative treatments. Readers learn to recognize the symptoms and warning signs of a wide range of mental health problems, find the right doctor or therapist, and make well-informed decisions about their own care. Included are diverse examples and fact-filled charts that compare the advantages and disadvantages of different treatments. This is a book readers will turn to again and again.

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.
