Anxiety and Phobias

“Both books focus on the significance of stigma as a barrier to seeking treatment and finding support. This is one of the stronger elements of the series. The authors make clear the connection between community support and successful treatment of mental illness. They also encourage readers to seek treatment if necessary.” -CM Magazine, 02/14
