Mental Health @ Home by Ashley L. Peterson

Mental health begins at home—
your home base, your centre, your place of strength and support.

MH@H Books

My newest book, Managing the Depression Puzzle by Ashley L. Peterson, takes a holistic, everything up to and including the kitchen sink approach to dealing with depression.

The other titles from MH@H Books, Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis and Psych Meds Made Simple, aim to cut through the stigma and misconceptions to provide accurate information about topics that affect people living with mental illness.


About the blog

This blog takes a no-holds-barred look at a variety of issues related to mental health.  It draws on my dual perspectives as a mental health nurse (and former pharmacist) and person living with treatment-resistant major depressive disorder.  

The goal is to raise awareness about mental illness, educate around a wide variety of mental health issues, and create a community where people can feel comfortable speaking openly about mental health without fear of judgment.

Mental Health @ Home is one of Feedspot’s Top 75 Mental Health Blogs, Websites & Influencers in 2020. It’s also on Blunt Therapy’s Best Mental Health Blogs list and the Psychreg Index of mental health blogs.
