The value of first-aid intervention has long been recognized in the treatment of physical illness. However, to date, the concept of first aid has eluded the realm of mental health. While treatment strategies have been developed and utilized by professionals, none have been designed to enable patients and caregivers to recognize and make an initial assessment of a particular mental illness and provide early intervention. This book introduces the concept of first aid to the most common mental health disorders. It outlines the Care approach -- a practical guide in checking for the presence of a mental health problem; anticipating possible complications of certain mental illness if not addressed properly; providing an early remedy or intervention; and educating the patients and caregivers regarding the do's and don'ts when confronted with a mental health issue.Rayel, Michael G. is the author of 'First Aid to Mental Illness A Practical Guide for Patients and Caregivers' with ISBN 9780968781654 and ISBN 0968781659.
