Understand our mental Health: Book List by Side by Side



So you love books as much as we do! That’s great to hear! We’ve been getting a lot of positive feedback on our recent post featuring a book list for children’s mental health. Along with the feedback, we’ve also received some requests for recommendations on other topics. Thank you for that!  We have just the list for you! At SSMH, we encourage self-directed learning and are happy to support you in the process. If you’ve felt that you’ve wanted to do a bit of research on a specific topic but didn’t know where to look, this is the perfect place to start.

Below, you will find book reviews on various mental health topics that are compiled by Psych Central, a trusted source of mental health information on the web.The books are reviewed by experts in the field and are quite helpful in deciding whether it’s worth your hard earned $$. Another helpful feature here is that, at the end of each review you can also find a rating by people who have already read the book. Excellent!

We think this is a wonderful resource and we hope you find it helpful. If you don’t see what you’re looking for here, feel free to drop us a line and we’ll do out best to point you in the right direction. Happy reading!

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!
