Making sense of psychiatric diagnosis by Ashley Peterson

Ashley who blogs at mental health home, has written an amazing book, and I thought I’d promote it for her!

I think its a must have for anyone dealing with a mental illness, or anyone who has a loved one who has a mental illness.

Here is a blurb about the book.

Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis: Understanding the DSM-5 covers the DSM-5 criteria for a variety of mental illnesses, including what’s involved in making a diagnosis, the symptom criteria for each diagnosis, and an explanation of what the various symptoms actually look like.

In order to give a clearer picture of what different psychiatric diagnoses are actually like to live with, the book includes first-hand accounts from people who have actually experienced each diagnosis.

With the fusion of diagnostic information, clinical experience, and lived experience, this book offers a unique, well-rounded perspective on the reality of mental illness.

Its available to buy in paperback from amazon, or on kindle, or for a cheaper price from Ashleys website, the link is below.
