In any given year, one in four Americans suffers from a diagnosable mental illness-and yet there is still a significant stigma attached to being labeled as mentally ill." We hear about worst-case scenarios, but in many-maybe even most-cases, there is much room for hope. These frank, often intimate stories reflect the writers' struggles to overcome-both as professionals and as individuals, as current therapists and as former patients-the challenges presented by depression, bipolar disorder, OCD, and other mental disorders. These dramatic narratives communicate clearly the rewards of helping patients move forward with their lives, often through a combination of medication, talk therapy, and common sense. Collectively, these true stories highlight the need for empathy and compassion between therapist and patient, and argue for a system that encourages human connection rather than diagnosis by checklist.

An Immense New Power to Heal

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/an-immense-new-power-to-hea...
Is personalized medicine-what some scientists call genetic medicine-a pipe dream or a panacea? Francis Collins, current director of the National Institutes of Health and director of the Human Genome Project, considers this new era "the greatest revolution since Leonardo," while Nobel Laureate Leland Hartwell compares personalized medicine to a train that has not yet left the station-"a very slow train with a very long way to go. before we arrive at our destination."There is no denying that new technology, which has triggered an explosion of scientific information, is ushering in a revolution in medicine-for specialists, general practitioners and the public. Anyone can spit in a cup and, for a small fee, learn about his or her individual genetic make-up. But how useful is this information, really, to us or to our doctors? What's more, how much do we truly want to know-and have others know-about our possible destiny? There is more than we can imagine at stake. In An Immense New Power to Heal, authors Lee Gutkind and Pagan Kennedy delve into the personal side of personalized medicine and offer the physician's perspective and the patient's experience through intimate narratives and case studies. They also offer an intriguing background of the personalized medicine movement including the fascinating personalities of the key scientists involved as well as a glimpse into the in-fighting that accompanies any race for a scientific breakthrough. The result is a highly engaging, lively, and provocative discussion about this revolution in health care, and most importantly, what it really means for patients now and in the future.
