Description

An anthology of first-person stories by patients and their families, "Success Stories from the Frontline" is a frank depiction of what life is like for people with both a developmental disability as well as a mental illness (for example, autism combined with obsessive-compulsive disorder). Acclaimed by psychiatric professionals, this is essential reading for those who have a loved one with this double diagnosis or who work in the mental health field. These stories are real and powerful. A useful resource, the book's summary explains causes of mental illness and the diagnostic process, while the glossary provides succinct explanations of mental disorders, symptoms and medications. The book highlights the need to raise awareness of this dual-diagnosis population and to provide more resources to address their special vulnerabilities.
