Great Book! Jan. 30 2013

This is an excellent book for people who have recently undergone thier first episode of psychosis. The book is reader frienly and succinct yet it still provides sufficient information on nearly all the aspects of early psychotic spectrum dissorders. The chapter on symptoms makes it very easy to identify emerging symptoms which is invaluable in keeping track of your disease. I would definatly reccoment this book to anyone who has recently been diagnosed with a psychotic illness and wants to moniter their behavior or prevent another episode.

This book did not provide any new information you cannot already find on the web. It is based on drugs as a fix and does not mention gluten or diet as a possible cause. When you are dealing with someone that is paranoid and refuses help and they dont fit the category of being committed - I have not yet found a good resource. I have not found any data on length of 1st time psychotic episode and long term outcome based on the possibly of pot as a trigger. If it goes away within a week on its own, what does that mean..? What are the odds of it happening again and when?
