The Download Centre – Mental Health @ Home

Mental Health @ Home Download Centre: mini-ebooks and mental health resources

The goal of the MH@H Download Centre is to offer useful, informative, and thought-provoking downloadable content related primarily to mental health, similar to what you can already find on the MH@H blog, but in expanded form.  The mental health content allows you to tap into my years of education and experience as a former mental health nurse and pharmacist.

I’ve also written three books, which can be found at:

The COVID-19/Mental Health Coping Toolkit and Mental Health Resource Directory both contain links to resources that are available on sites other than MH@H.
