Sobre o livro
This book is narration by a psychiatrist. The purpose of this book is to provide education, information and knowledge about mental health and prevention of psychological illnesses. For this reason, Dr Shrivastava, a long time psychiatrist, has compiled stories of problems faced by patients and treatments they received with frank discussion and academic facts. One out of five people in our society suffer from a mental disorder. The experience of psychological illness disconnects them from their own selves. Though it is a treatable condition, patients seldom receive treatment. One of the main barriers is the stigma which is a clinical risk factor. We are unable to deal with stigma because people do not speak up about their experiences. We are unable to project examples of successful treatment. This limitation increases stigma.
