Mental Health @ Home Books
Ashley L. Peterson
Welcome to Mental Health @ Home! I’m Ashley L. Peterson, creator of this blog and author of the titles published by MH@H Books.
I worked as a mental health nurse for 15 years, working primarily with people with serious and persistent mental illness in hospital and community settings. I was a pharmacist prior to that. I was first diagnosed with major depressive disorder in 2007, and since then, I’ve been passionate about sharing my own experiences to generate open conversations about mental illness.
About the Blog
Mental health begins at home—your place of strength, stability, and support.
MH@H takes a no-holds-barred look at a wide variety of issues related to mental health and illness. It draws on my dual perspectives as a former mental health professional and person living with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder. The approach is candid, pragmatic, and anti-BS.
The goal is to raise awareness about mental illness, provide information on a broad range of mental health issues, and create a community where people can feel comfortable speaking openly about mental health without fear of judgment.
The Resources page has mini-ebooks, guided journals, and other downloadable tools.
