"How do I get my child, spouse/friend to see someone? This is the most
common question psychiatrists hear from families. I recommend this
book to all of you in this predicament."

"This is an authoritative and smart guide for the perplexed in need of
care written by an experienced clinician and teacher."

"If you are a family member or friend who first really grasps that someone may be in emotional trouble; this book can give you sound guidance about how to approach that individual."

--"Patrick J. Kennedy, former member of Congress, author of the Mental Health"
"You Need Help is clearly on-target in answering the question that repeatedly surfaces during our contacts with hundreds of people who are desperately seeking to help a relative or close friend suffering from an apparent mental illness. Far too often we are told of someone's loved one who struggles with frightening erratic feelings or behaviors and has rejected seeing a mental health professional for diagnosis, claiming that "I'm not sick, you are!."
Against the backdrop of out-of-control emotions, the family frequently experiences the chilling and paralyzing fear of threatened or imminent suicide, should they intervene with expectations for psychiatric care. And so it was heartwarming to read through the contents of "You Need Help" which is replete with descriptive examples and step-by-step suggestions offering a rich, thorough and caring guide of options available to caregivers. The reader is empowered and informed on several pathways leading to competent care.
This book will be included on our recommended resource list for both its thoroughness in providing critical answers and also for its message of hope for
2013 Exemplary Psychiatrist of the Year, Awarded by NAMI 2013 Mental Health Professional of the Year Award from NAMI Baltimore.
