Based on Mrs. Carter's twenty-five years of advocacy and the latest data from the Rosalynn Carter Symposia for mental illness, her book offers step-by-step information on what to do after the diagnosis: seeking the best treatment; evaluating health-care providers; managing workplace, financial, and legal matters.
Mrs. Carter addresses the latest breakthroughs in understanding, research, and treatment of schizophrenia, depression, manic depression, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and other mental disorders. She also discusses the emotional and psychological issues in caregiving for people with mental illness: coping with the impact on the family, dealing with burnout, and connecting with the right support. She offers concrete suggestions to help erase the prejudice and discrimination based on misinformation about mental illness.
