Mental Health Book Reviews

Mental health book reviews are published every Wednesday on MH@H. I review non-fiction books on topics related to mental health and illness, and I particularly enjoy reviewing books by indie authors. My goal with reviews is to help readers learn something from a book even if they don’t end up going on to read it.

This page includes the books I’ve reviewed so far. I’ve added subject tags in italics if a book’s subject isn’t clear from the title.

The names of authors who are fellow bloggers are hyperlinked to their blogs. Their books cover some additional genres outside of what I typically review. You can also find them on my author friends shelf on Goodreads.
