Head case: Treat yourself to better mental health

Stephenson Connolly, Pamela

A definitive guide to mental health problems, and how YOU can tackle them. Have you ever felt blue? Do you turn to food for comfort? Are you unable to sleep despite overwhelming exhaustion? You are not alone. 154 million people globally suffer depression, which is just the tip of the mental illness iceberg. The vast majority receive no treatment, due to an immense lack of specialists, resources and understanding. But this doesn't mean you have to suffer in silence. HEAD CASE gives you the clinical expertise, without the professional jargon. Dr Pamela Connolly offers simple self-assessment tools and down-to-earth information on a wide range of mental health problems. She explains everything that can go wrong with your mind, and sets out easy steps to start feeling better straight away. HEAD CASE is the most comprehensive book of its kind, covering everything from mood, personality and sleep disorders to anxiety, trauma and addiction. It addresses the effect of childhood experiences on later life, and how to deal with issues from the past. It is a helpful, practical and positive guide that will inspire readers to make manageable steps towards a more joyful life. 'Pamela Stephenson Connolly has written just about the perfect companion to the mind, mental health, mood and personality...authoritative without being technical, simple without being simplistic, this is about as useful as a book can be.' -- Stephen Fry 'Covering everything from trauma to depression, this is a helpful guide, enriched by Stephenson's expertise and lucid writing style.' -- Psychologies magazine 'Popular books about mental health have an important role to play in the task of democratizing mental health and in helping to reduce the stigma attached to so-called mental illness... Pamela Stephenson Connolly's new self-help book is a good example of the genre.' -- Times Literary Supplement
