In the recent National Mental Health and Well Being report published by the Ministry of Health (Singapore) in 2023, there has been a decline in the state of Mental Wellness among Singaporeans, from 13.4% with some condition in 2020 to 17% in 2022, with youths aged 18 to 29 being the hardest hit.

What exactly constitutes a mental illness, and how do psychiatrists diagnose patients? Although the concept of mental disorder lacks a consistent operational definition that covers all situations, this handbook has managed to classify mental illness based on criteria sets with defining features.

The bulk of this handbook focuses on clinical disorders such as mood, anxiety, sleep, substance-related and psychotic disorders, which could be of interest to both caregivers and healthcare providers, and not just medical students.

Book material worth noting include (i) Decision trees for differential diagnosis (Appendix A), which aid the clinician in understanding the organization structure of DSM-IV classification and (ii) A glossary of technical terms (Appendix C) for reference by lay readers.

I would recommend this valuable handbook to students keen to learn more about the diagnosis of mental disorders, as well as caregivers who wish to gain additional insight into their loved one’s condition.

Relatable, but dense. Pretty dull, too. No plot, characters were all very 2D, and there was a lot of telling, not showing. There was also no dialogue, which is something I look for in a good book.

This is a great reference when dealing with mental health issues. This is the official diagnosis manual that lists the criteria that mental health professionals use.
