In recent years there have been major advances in our understanding of the causes of mood disorders. Treatments have improved significantly. In 'Mood Disorders', Joyce and Mitchell and their co-authors highlight the nature of these conditions, their diagnosis and classification, and their causes. The writers discuss the increasing array of treatment options for people who suffer with mood disorders. Finally the book examines these illnesses over the life cycle--from childhood through to old age.
