Nearly forty percent of Americans will face some form of mental illness in their lifetime, and many of them, desperate for an answer, blindly accept misinformation from drug companies and clinicians that drugs are the best or only treatment option. In this bold and provocative book, Charles Whitfield, M.D., takes a different approach to afflictions of the mind, offering successful alternatives and new hope for our quick-fix, "magic pill" society.

With a thorough look at world research, Dr. Whitfield proves that mental illness is not as advertised: It is not simply a group of genetically transmitted disorders of brain chemistry and, more importantly, it does not reliably respond to psychoactive drugs. Using cutting-edge research, he exposes the strong relationship between childhood trauma and mental illness, and offers alternative recovery programs that focus on treating the trauma effects.

Dr. Whitfield explains the risks, side effects and inefficiency of many overpriced drugs, and through numerous clinical histories, offers new hope to patients and clinicians who are struggling with treating a mental illness.
