Mental Health: Prevention is a simple yet comprehensive guide to a wide range of causes of mental illnesses. It was written so that the average person can understand the causes, and prevention of these debilitating conditions.
It takes an approach that covers the entire lifespan of a person from genetics to elder abuse. Mental illness can be caused by a wide range of biological and external factors, and it is hoped that if these are understood, illnesses and relapses can be prevented.
