This book is a narration by a psychiatrist and the purpose of this book is to provide education, information, and knowledge about mental health promotion and prevention of the psychological disorder. For this reason, Dr. Shrivastava, a long-time psychiatrist, has compiled stories of problems faced by patients and the treatment they received with frank discussions and academic facts. One out of five people in our society suffers from a mental disorder. The experience of psychological illness disconnects them from their own selves. Though it is a treatable condition, patients seldom receive treatment. One of the main barriers is the stigma which is a clinical risk factor. We are unable to deal with the stigma because people do not speak-up about their experiences. We are unable to project examples of successful treatment. This limitation increases stigma. This book contains several stories of positive changes in lives of individuals with mental health issues and aims to disseminate factual and scientific knowledge about mental health and psychological disorder amongst people.
