The information contained in this encyclopedia is designed for the layman, rather than for the mental health professional. Perhaps you are a friend or a family member of a person with a mental illness. Maybe you are concerned about your own health, and you would like to find out more about a particular mental health disorder, or research and read about the field of mental illness.
Whatever your interest in this topic, you will find this information easy to use and understand. The information is categorized by major disorder and then alphabetized, so you can quickly locate what you need. Every illness and disorder is explained in laymen’s terms, and each article provides a general description of the disorder, the symptoms that usually accompany the disorder, how a doctor will evaluate and diagnose a patient, and how the illness is treated.
This encyclopedia is comprised of fifteen major categories of mental disorders, and fifty-nine articles about individual disorders and illnesses, covering all of the most commonly recognized and diagnosed mental health conditions, and many of the lesser-known disorders.
The information contained in these Articles is compiled and presented for information and educational purposes only. If you believe that you or a loved one may have a mental health disorder, you should, of course, consult a physician. Family and patient education is important, but only a qualified doctor or mental health professional can diagnose and treat a medical condition or mental illness.
