Book Synopsis: The end of mental illness begins with a revolution in brain health.
Though the incidence of conditions like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorders, addictions, PTSD, and ADHD is skyrocketing, standard treatment and success rates in treating these conditions have barely changed in the last seven decades. Meanwhile, the stigma of “mental illness” prevents many people from getting the help they need.
Based on his brain-imaging work at Amen Clinics, with more than 170,000 scans on patients from 121 countries, neuroscientist and psychiatrist Daniel Amen, MD, has learned that most psychiatric illnesses are not mental health issues at all. Rather, they are brain health issues that steal your mind. This one idea changes everything: Get your brain right and your mind will follow.
In The End of Mental Illness, Dr. Amen challenges an outdated psychiatric paradigm and helps readers improve the health of their own brains, minimizing or reversing conditions that may be preventing them from living full and emotionally healthy lives.
-what is causing the epidemic rise of mental health issues and how to prevent them
- why standard treatments often fail, and why diagnosing and treating patients based on symptoms alone often misses the true cause of those symptoms, resulting in poor outcomes
- simple things you can do to heal your brain and improve your mood, focus, energy, and overall sense of happiness
The End of Mental Illness gives you the power to strengthen your brain to improve your mind.
