Reviews

Focusing on terms, disorders, treatments, and issues, this resource explores mental health and wellness in an in-depth but accessible way....[E]ach volume manages to add another layer to the understanding of this nebulous subject. The simple presentation, full of personal accounts, photographs, and examples, makes this set a good selection for libraries looking for a general overview of mental health....[I]t is perfect for smaller research projects or general interest. -VOYA
