This audiobook is also a section in The Everything Anxiety Disorders Book and is being made available in this seperate title, for those who wish to learn specifically about the distinguishing characteristics of mental and emotional disorders.
In the chapters of this audiobook, I present information regarding common emotional conditions of "neurosis" and the less-common conditions of mental illness referred to as "psychosis". It is my intention to help define the differences between these two types of emotional and mental disorders but to also present the differences between common conditions of neurosis that are in the anxiety and depression categories.
Subjects covered include descriptions of major depression, bipolar depression, schizophrenia, and different types of major anxiety disorders. Signs, symptoms, and diagnoses are discussed, as well as the treatments that are administered for these different types of disorders (i.e. pharmaceutical, psychiatric, and natural therapies).

James Lowrance has no academic training of any kind in psychology. Not even a Bachelor's degree. He wants to share his with you his personal health journey and his accumulated wisdom from years of Internet bulletin board posts. He's a Bible School graduate who evidently feels entitled to employ the same democratic approach to psychology and medicine. Don't waste your time.
I live in Columbia Maryland not Columbia Moldova! I haven't turned into a Groucho Marx character yet.
If this audiobook was entitled depression/ anxiety disorders and thyroid disorders I would have known what I was buying. There is absolutely no discussion that would help a consumer or clinician differentiate between neurosis and psychosis. If I wanted to know how thyroid gland disorders are sometimes misdiagnosed as as psychosomatic illness, I would have gotten my moneys worth. Terrible book.
"not for professionals"
this is a very basic account of some mental illnesses and skips over some possible treatments. I wouldn't recommend
for any professions.
