We tend to take our mental health for granted, yet face with our own mental illness, or mental ill-health among our family or friends we can feel overwhelmed. Troubled Minds: Understanding and treating mental illness by Academy Fellows Sidney Bloch and Nick Haslam is a welcome and authoritative guide for anyone whose life has been touched by mental illness and who wants to understand and deal effectively with it.

Described as ‘essential reading’, Troubled Minds is an invaluable resource for understanding the nature of many mental illnesses, developmental disorders and neurological variations—such as autism, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and many others—and points the way to understanding and treatment. With chapters on children and adolescence it also includes guidance on how individuals can promote their own mental wellbeing.


Co-authors Emeritus Professor Sidney Bloch AM and Professor Nick Haslam are among Australia’s most eminent mental health professionals and educators. Between them they have nearly a century of academic achievement, clinical experience and publications on psychology and mental health therapies.
