|Summary, etc.:||Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe mental illness that can be devastating for patients and their loved ones. Whether you are a newly diagnosed patient or a relative of someone suffering from this condition, this hook provides authoritative, practical answers to your questions about symptoms, diagnosis, treatment options, sources of support, and much more. Expert psychiatrist Dr. Lynn Eleanor DeLisi has updated her book with new facts, statistics, and helpful information that many patients and their families seek, including new progress in genetics, updates on medication use and other new treatments, new emphasis on early detection and treatment, as well as new diagnostic structures with DSM-V, and for research, the RDoC. This book is an invaluable resource for anyone coping with the physical, mental, and emotional turmoil of schizophrenia.--Adapted from back cover.|
