The Vital Balance: The Life Process in Mental Health and Illness

The Vital Balance: The Life Process in Mental Health and Illness by Karl Menninger is widely acknowledged as a basic work that offers a new, unitary concept of mental health and illness.


It dispenses with the old confusing labels and substitutes a method of diagnosis and treatment in which all disturbed states of the mind and the emotions are seen as stages in a single process.

It marks the culmination of a complete revolution in the outlook of psychiatry – from helpless resignation to active hope and assurance.
