Mental Health Books to Check Out!



Mental health-1


There are so many great fiction & non-fiction books to read if you want to learn more about mental illnesses! In this list, I chose ten that I have read to share. I sorted them by mental health category, although some individuals could fall into multiple categories (i.e. anxiety and depression; eating disorders and bipolar disorder). I hope you enjoy!



Bipolar Disorder:






























Are there any you would add to the list? Let me know in the comments!

    1. Awesome! Furiously Happy somehow makes even subjects such as depression and crippling anxiety somewhat lighthearted and humorous. An Unquiet Mind has a much different, more serious tone, but it is a classic that really changed the way people view bipolar disorder. Also, it is beautifully written. I love them both! Thanks for sharing and I hope you enjoy them too! 🙂

  1. Hi Anja!

    I found you thanks to a retweet by International Bipolar Foundation’s about what you’ve been writing & I stopped by to visit your blog.

    I know you appreciate Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison’s work – you have great taste! 🙂 I was honored she endorsed my book “Birth of a New Brain-Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder” and so did Mark Lukach, author of “My Lovely Wife in the Psych Ward.”

    Ashley, who wrote the previous comment, gave it a wonderful review on her blog too – it one of the best ones. If you’d like a review copy of my book for your blog, please feel free to email me at anytime.

    Here’s the link to the Amazon reviews if you want to check them out:

    Take care & keep up your awesome work!
