In the last twenty years, psychiatry has changed its focus from counseling to medicating. Dr. William Glasser brings mental health back into the picture. He explains what it is and how each of us can use the new ideas in this book to work toward improving our own mental health or helping children and other family members to improve theirs.
Dr. Glasser warns of these hazards: diagnosed as mentally ill when you are not; treated for that nonexistent illness, often with harmful brain drugs such as Prozac, Zoloft, and Ritalin; and, worst of all, told that there is nothing you can do for yourself.
This book presents scientific proof that there is nothing wrong with your brain and that there is no pill for the happiness you need. It teaches how you can, by yourself or with your family's help, improve your own mental health at no cost and at no risk to yourself. If you or a family member has been diagnosed as mentally ill, this is the book you should read.
