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.
I’ve also attached the cover of the book to this post!
So go on, what are you waiting for, go out and buy this great book, it will make a great addition to your bookshelves.
