Although mental illnesses severely affect thoughts, moods, and coping abilities, a fulfilling life is still possible for people who face those challenges. Outlining the symptoms and possible causes of schizophrenia, clinical depression, and bipolar disorder, this program explores various treatment options and identifies ways that patients can achieve personal independence. Real-world success stories are featured, emphasizing the importance of support from family and friends, as well as the vital role that medication and therapy play. A detailed discussion of meds developed during the 1990s sheds light on their improvements over previous drugs, as well as concerns about their side effects.
