Mental Health - A Layman's Guide by Miriam Plans is a lifeline for the troubled, impaired victims and their families who are frustrated and often harmed by the entrenched, unassailable medical community. They need this layman's appraoch to understanding and coping with their predicament in terms that they can comprehend and which offers measures they can accept and use.

All through the book are specific guidelines for the affected person to follow, namely:
--Identifying and dealing with a possible organic cause of the problem
--Using only the right drugs
--Working with good support groups
--Consulting respected, trusted clergy, lawyers, experts, and other knowlegeable persons
--Learning about psychiatric and psychological practices in historical or current use
--Becoming familiar with ongoing governmental health issues and legislation and how they affect us.

This masterful analysis of the psychiatric community and its practices provides valuable information and advice in crisp everyday language, efficient organization, pleasant readable style, and sincere empathy for the reader needing help. --- from the publisher
