This is a book about broken brains. The break between what is perceived, what is believed, and what is objectively real. Ultimate breaking away of the personality from the reality is called schizophrenia in the medical jargon. But there are many other dislocations, slips and cracks. These are called personality and mental disorders. Most of these destabilize young people in their prime almost derailing the journey of their destinies. Very sensitive minds of young children get burdened with terrible stress. They just act crazy in an effort to adapt to the reality around them. Is it not really a healthy response to an insane world? A brave act of survival!

the beginning of written history, people have wondered why they do things they do not want to do, especially when those things are not beneficial and, in some instances, detrimental. Broken Brain Syndrome explains the why-of and the how-to in correcting this human inconsistency that leads to dysfunctional behavior. This phenomenon has existed since Adam and Eve and has continued to plague mankind. Many books have been published to mitigate life’s difficulties. Even before “pop” psychology and the New Age spiritual movement, such as John Bradshaw and Marianne Williamson respectively, the Torah, New Testament, Eastern philosophies, the Koran, and other teachings all aim at improving one’s life. Yet the vast majority of people in societies of the world have not been able to find long-term peace, serenity, love, and success. This is so because of their inability to understand the dysfunctional dynamic taking place within their own heads, causing dysfunctional lives. Broken Brain Syndrome addresses finally the underlying cause of the dysfunction. Broken Brain Syndrome provides people with the basic understanding of the real problem of what is fundamentally wrong with them so that the teachings of the New Age and those of the past can now make sense and bring about a successful life.

The terms "mental illness” and “mental health” are often used casually, but many don’t believe mental illness is relevant to their lives. However, studies show that more people live with mental illness than heart disease, lung disease, and cancer combined.

This memoir is an honest look at the stress, anger, education, and finally, hope experienced through eyes of a mother. Along the way, she questions her trust in God as their family encounters setbacks, inadequate treatments, and additional family health crises, but with the help of trusted family, friends, education, and support groups, author Virginia Pillars learns to rely on her faith as she faces the challenges that often accompany mental illness.

The Broken Brain provides a complete and remarkably readable guide to the new scientific understanding of schizophrenia, severe depression, and other major mental disorders and to the new medications that have already returned hundreds of thousands to more normal lives. Dr. Andreasen's book is also a social manifesto that seeks to remove the shame, guilt, and punishment that are still attached to the mentally ill and, instead, to regard them "as human beings who deserve as much sensitivity and love as people who suffer from cancer, muscular dystrophy, or heart disease."

Dr. Mike Dow is a best-selling author, psychotherapist, and relationship expert. So why is he writing a book about stroke? Well, what you probably don’t know about Dr. Mike is that his younger brother, David, is a stroke survivor. What’s more, David’s stroke happened when he only 10 years old.

He watched helplessly as his brother wrestled with depression, trying to find the motivation to recover on top of the challenges of adolescence. He mourned the loss of what could have been —and he was angry. How his family would have loved to sit down with top experts in stroke to find out what they should be doing and have their questions answered. Now Dr. Mike has the ability to do just that, and he’s doing it so that others in his family’s position don’t have the same struggle. Armed with questions from stroke survivors and their loved ones, Dr. Mike talks with the best clinicians across the country to get over 100 answers you need to know to maximize your recovery.

Journey with Kimberly through one crisis that set her up for failure and another life-altering experience that remapped her brain for success. “Had the road sign read, ‘Take a sharp right turn here and follow the path to your life-altering destiny,’ I would have turned and gone in another direction. The path was marked with two color-coded shapes: the green circle indicated a widely groomed, easy trail, and the blue square led to an intermediate slope. I needed the green trail that led to the lodge at the bottom of the mountain. I had taken a hard fall on the catwalk and wasn’t feeling so good. To get to the trail, I needed to take a sharp right turn. The only problem was, I suddenly didn’t know what right meant. I could not find my right side. Everything right was gone!” Kimberly fell into her defining role and life’s purpose (quite literally) when she skied over a cliff and sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI). One day, Kimberly was a vibrant career woman who enjoyed a successful lifestyle and an active social life. The next, she had to learn basic life skills to survive. Kimberly’s quest for survival sent her in search of the missing pieces of her past. She learned that survival is a multifaceted anvil that shapes our decisions and forges our future. Merely existing then becomes a double-edged sword: you may have managed to keep breathing, but are you really living? The only way for survival to triumph is to acknowledge the role of fear in the face of crisis: affirmed fear liberates; coddled fear incapacitates. Denial keeps us stuck!
