Knowledge of psychiatric disorders is inadequate in our country. So much so that often mental problems like hysteria, depression, suicidal tendencies and schizophrenia are considered as manifestations of evil spirits, fruits of bad actions, etc. Instead of taking the patient to a doctor, a Tantric or mantra-vadi is consulted.

This book seeks to provide scientific information on many common mental disorders like depression, obsessive compulsive disorder and mania. More serious mental disorders like schizophrenia and suicidal tendencies are also covered in an easily comprehensible manner. The author stresses that if mental disorders are recognized timely and treated correctly, personal, familial, social, financial and legal complications can be prevented.

The author is Professor and Head, Department of Psychiatry, University College of Medical Science, University of Delhi and GTB Hospital, Delhi. He has authored a number of books on related topics.
