Mental illness is a psychological pattern that occurs in an individual and it causes distress and disability. This medical condition disturbs a person´s thinking, daily doings, feeling, and ability to maintain with others. Serious mental illnesses include major depression, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and borderline personality disorder. The most important thing is that it can be recovered. Medical illnesses can take many forms, just as physical illnesses do. Mental illnesses are still feared and misunderstood by many people, but the fear will disappear as people learn more about them. But in order to be fearless you must get the following information. Mental illness is very common. One out of every four people in Britain is dealing with a mental illness. Mental illnesses are some of the least understood conditions in society. As a result of this condition, many people face prejudice and discrimination in their everyday lives. However, most people can lead productive and fulfilling lives with appropriate treatment and support. For some people, drugs and other medical treatments are helpful, but for other they are not. Medical treatment may only be a part of what helps recovery, and not necessarily the main part. It is not a fault of someone rather this is not a sign of weakness, and it´s not something to be ashamed of. Persons suffering from any of the severe mental disorders present with a variety of symptoms that may include inappropriate anxiety, disturbances of thought and perception, deregulation of mood, and cognitive dysfunction. Most of these symptoms may be relatively specific to a particular diagnosis or cultural influence. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cathy Beard.

´´What was the likelihood my adopted daughter would have my father´s hazel eyes and my mother´s mental illness?´´ In this fiercely candid memoir, Dr. Pruchno, a scientist widely acclaimed for her research on mental illness and families, shows how mental illness threatened to destroy her own family. Not once, but twice. As a child, she didn´t understand her mother´s episodes of crippling sadness or whirlwind activity. As a mother, she feared her daughter Sophie would follow in the footsteps of the grandmother Sophie never knew. Unraveling the mysteries of her mother´s and daughter´s illnesses, Pruchno fought to preserve her marriage and protect her son. But it was not until she came to terms with her own secrets that she truly understood the destructive and pervasive effects mental illness has on families. Surrounded by Madness is transforming. It will empower families to stop hiding and start talking when mental illness strikes. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gabra Zackman.

In some people exam anxiety and the imagination of failure are so unpleasant that during preparation for an exam, the concentration and learning success is suffering significantly. Then, at the time of examination, there may be the often-feared mental block or excessive anxiety that makes a successful exam impossible. In this imaginary journey, the listener gradually learns to deal with his or her fears. The thoughts of fear are not simply swiped away with positive thinking, but the listener is guided step by step to experience a real exam in his or her imagination. Only out of this situation can the fears be resolved and converted using various techniques of NLP and hypnosis. Every student should use this guided imagery as soon as possible and regularly during his or her preparation time. After a few repeated hearings, many listeners already notice a more relaxed learning environment. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Allen Logue.

For an overpopulated Earth, whose resources are strained to the breaking point, there is only one place to look for relief: straight up. With the successful completion of the Padrugoi Space Station, humanity has at last achieved its first large-scale permanent presence in space. Additional bases are feverishly being built on the Moon and on Mars, stepping-stones to the greatest adventure in all history: the colonization of alien worlds. Already, long-range telescopes have identified a number of habitable planets orbiting other stars. Now it´s just a question of getting there. But there are those who, for selfish motives of their own, want Padrugoi and the other outposts to fail - people who will stop at nothing to maintain their power or to avenge its loss. Standing in their way are the Talented, men and women gifted with extraordinary mental powers that have made them as feared as they are respected - and utterly indispensable to the colonization effort. There is Peter Reidinger, a teenage paraplegic who is the strongest telekinetic ever, his mind capable of teleporting objects and people thousands of miles in the blink of an eye. Yet all his power cannot repair his damaged spine or allow him to feel the gentle touch of a loved one. There is also Rhyssa Owne, the powerful telepath and mother hen to Peter and the rest of her ´´children´´ - and a fierce, unrelenting fighter against the prejudice that would deny the Talented the right to lead happy and productive lives. And Amariyah, an orphan girl who loves two things in the world above all others: gardening and Peter Reidinger. And woe to anyone who harms either one of them - for the young girl´s talent may prove to be the most amazing of all. Now, as sabotage and attempted murder strike the Station, it´s up to the Talented to save the day. Only, who´s going to save the Talented? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sharon Williams.

In 2000 Dennis O´Donnell was approached to work as an orderly in the Intensive Psychiatric Care Unit of a large hospital in central Scotland. ´I don´t know if I´m the man you want,´ he told the Charge Nurse. ´I´m not a fighter.´ ´I don´t need fighters,´ the Nurse replied. ´I need people who can listen.´ The Locked Ward is an extraordinary memoir that sets out to reveal the true story of life in a psychiatric ward - the fear, the violence and despair, and also the care and the compassion. Recounting the stories of the patients he worked with, and those of the friends he made on the ward, O´Donnell provides a detailed account of day-to-day life behind the doors of the most feared and stigmatised environment in healthcare. In doing so, he examines the major mental disorders, their symptoms and manifestations, and how certain triggers such as religion, sex, wealth, health and drugs bear influence; the methods of treatment, by medication, therapy and conversation; the love and support of patients´ friends and family members; success stories and failures, and attitudes to psychiatric illness, both by the authorities, by those around him - and his own. Over seven years O´Donnell witnessed the day-to-day lives of people suffering from the most hair-raising illnesses. What emerges is a document of humanity and humour, a remarkable memoir that sheds light on a world that still remains largely unknown. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dennis O´Donnell.

Have you ever thought that someone in your life currently or someone you were involved with in the past is a narcissist? Perhaps you think that you may be living with one. You, or someone you know, could even have horrific stories to tell of Machiavellian encounters with your ´´loved one´´ that just wouldn´t stop. You may think that you are being treated like an ´´object´´, used for their every desire, or used like you are a slave, and you just can´t understand why. Some poor souls who believe they have been victims of narcissism tell of going through hell, then ending up divorced and millions of dollars in debt. Or you are positive your boss is a narcissist and you need to figure out how to deal with it, or you are going to ´´go crazy´´ or resign before you do. Maybe people have accused you of being a narcissist, and you think this accusation is just a nasty way of telling you they think you are selfish. Of course, you are better than most everyone else. Why can´t the world just accept it? Why won´t everybody do what you tell them to do? They know you are always right! Or have you ever feared that because you have so many ´´broken´´ relationships that you are indeed a narcissist? What is narcissism anyway? Is it really a mental problem that some people have, or is it just a ´´bad personality type´´? If it is a mental condition, how do you get it? Is it contagious? Is it ´´terminal´´? Can it be treated with drugs? Why in the world would anybody call the love of self narcissistic? I heard that a certain amount of narcissism is healthy, and without having it, you are going to get trampled on in life. Is this true? Where did this term come from? Once you have narcissism, if it is real, can anybody really do anything about it? Can a doctor help my spouse or my boss or not? If so, what kind of doctor? 1. Language: English.

Some children inherit the family nose. Autumn Stringam and her brother Joseph inherited bipolar disorder, a severe mental illness that led to the suicides of their mother and grandfather. Autumn was in a psychiatric hospital on suicide watch by the time she was 22. Joseph, at 15, was prone to violent episodes so terrifying that his family feared for their lives. But after Autumn and Joseph began taking a nutritional supplement developed by their father - and based, incredibly, on a formula given to aggressive hogs - their symptoms disappeared, and today they both lead normal, productive lives. A Promise of Hope is the story of Autumn´s flight from madness to wellness and an astonishing scientific account of a treatment that has also helped thousands of others. It is a powerful call for a new understanding of mental illness, its causes and its treatments. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Autumn Stringam.

The ultimate story of America´s dominant warriors.... When Osama bin Laden was assassinated, the entire world was fascinated by the men who had completed the seemingly impossible mission that had dogged the US government for over a decade. SEAL Team 6 became synonymous with heroism, duty, and justice. Only a handful of the elite men who make up the SEALs, the US Navy´s best and bravest, survive the legendary and grueling selection process that leads to Team 6, a group so classified it technically does not even exist. There are no better warriors on Earth. Don Mann knows what it takes to be a brother of this ultra-selective fraternity. As a member of Seal Team Six for over eight years, and a SEAL for over 17 years, he worked in countless covert operations, operating from land, sea, and air, and facing shootings, decapitations, and stabbings. He was captured by the enemy and lived to tell the tale, and he participated in highly classified missions all over the globe, including Somalia, Panama, El Salvador, Colombia, Afghanistan, and Iraq. As a current training coordinator for several civilian SEAL training programs, and as a former Training Officer of SEAL Team 6, he was directly responsible for shaping the bodies and minds of SEALs who carried out the assassination of Osama bin Laden. But to become a SEAL, Mann had to overcome his own troubled childhood and push his body to its breaking point - and beyond. Inside SEAL Team 6 is a high-octane narrative of physical and mental toughness, giving unprecedented insight to the inner workings of the training and secret missions of the world´s most respected and feared combat unit. 1.
