In Flagging the Therapy, Dr Barry develops his highly accessible approach to mental health.
As Irish society undergoes rapid change and we have faced perhaps the bleakest economic conditions in modern memory, it is not surprising that the issue of mental health has become more prominent and somewhat more openly discussed than previously. In his best – selling book Flagging the Problem, Harry Barry developed a unique colour-coded approach to various mental health problems. In Flagging the Therapy he focuses on two of the most common of these problems: depression and anxiety.
Dr Barry examines the range of options, including the various drug, talk and alternative therapies, available to those suffering from depression and anxiety, whether mild or severe. Drawing on his extensive experience as a GP of ‘walking the walk’ with those on such a journey, he outlines a new holistic pathway which is practical and easy to follow. This book is essential reading for anyone who is experiencing problems with their mental health, as well as their friends and families, and for everyone who wants to gain a better understanding of how the mind works.
