Staying Sane Summary

Staying Sane by Raj Persaud

How often do we hear ourselves say "I can't cope", "I'm going mad", "I'm losing my mind"? Despite all the advice on offer to us, how often do we struggle to maintain a healthy mental attitude in the face of seemingly endless pressure? Now, in "Staying Sane" psychiatrist and broadcaster, Dr Raj Persaud, cuts through the myths and taboos surrounding the subject of mental health to offer proven strategies and advice for achieving and maintaining a balanced, positive attitude, regardless of the stresses and strains of daily life. As he confronts crucial issues - such as the meaning of happiness and the importance of emotional intelligence - he aims to strengthen both your mind and your relationships, and reduce your vulnerability to debilitating conditions such as depression. Passionately argued, and supported by a wide range of case histories, questionnaires and scientific research, this is a useful, 21st century survival handbook.
