Praise for the previous edition:
"...a useful addition to many libraries."—American Reference Books Annual

Many doctors agree that stress may be a significant factor in nearly 80 percent of their patients’ ailments. The Encyclopedia of Stress and Stress-Related Diseases, Second Edition, provides a clear, comprehensive reference to all types of stress, their causes, their impact on health, and how to cope with and treat them. In more than 800 entries, this revised and updated book covers advances in mental health, new information about stress, and new forms and causes of stress. The bibliography has been expanded, and the resources section has been updated and reorganized for ease of use.

New and revised entries include accidents, chemical hazards, dating, electronic devices, falling merchandise, flexible work hours, gestalt therapy, identity theft, noise, parental after-school stress (PASS), road rage, and social phobias.

Excerpts from a review of The Encyclopedia of Mental Health, 3rd edition....Booklist,

May, 2008 

The third edition includes everything from the previous editions (1993 and 2001) and strives to keep pace with our constantly changing world. .. the focus has shifted to embrace contemporary issues  and the coping mechanisms at our disposal. Entries on topics such as aging, culture shock, depression, homelessness, layoffs, migration, post-traumatic stress disorder and road rage reflect current world conditions.

The Encyclopedia of Mental Health presents an excellent broad overview of the mental-health field - topics, prominent names, drugs, and organizations. Geared for general readers, it is intended to complement other resources and is recommended for consumer-health collections.
