Coping with Schizophrenia: A Guide for Patients, Families and Caregivers is available to buy at Mental Health Books.

This book offers a guide to patients on the road to recovery, with the involvement of family members and caregivers. It offers empowerment and hope to those concerned, and addresses the many troubling obstacles that the diagnosed schizophrenic has to overcome in daily life, such as social isolation and chronic depression, as well as the more recognizably “schizophrenic” attributes such as delusions, hallucinations and hearing voices.

The book’s aim is to combine optimism and hope with realism and practicality, offering insight and sensitivity towards this difficult condition. As with many of the “practical guide” books in mental health, it draws heavily from cognitive therapy, extolling the virtues of crisis management, maintenance and responsibility. The book offers many case studies to provide examples of how the techniques described by Jones and Hayward can be put to practical use.


“This is an excellent [book] and will make a very significant contribution to helping those with a diagnosis of schizophrenia. The book is extremely well written and achieves the difficult feat of combining optimism with realism.”
–Dr. David R. Hemsley, Professor of Abnormal Psychology, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Institute of Psychiatry, King s College London, UK.
