Mental Health @ Home Books covers: Managing the Depression Puzzle, Psych Meds Made Simple, and Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnoisis

Mental Health @ Home Books (MH@H Books) is the publishing imprint that’s associated with this blog.  My name is Ashley L. Peterson, and I write books about mental illness aimed at both people who live with mental illness and those who want to support us.   I do this by combining my knowledge and experience as a mental health nurse and former pharmacist, as well as my lived experience as a person living with depression.  MH@H books take the same pragmatic, cut-though-the-BS tone that you’ll find here on the Mental Health @ Home blog. Currently in the works is a book about mental illness stigma.  The title is yet to be decided, and it will be coming to you sometime in 2021.  

Mental Health @ Home Books cover: Managing the Depression Puzzle by Ashley L. Peterson

Managing the Depression Puzzle

Managing The Depression Puzzle is my latest book, and it’s available on Amazon and other major online retailers, as well as the MH@H Store.  As with my previous books, it combines professional knowledge with personal experience.  It takes a very holistic perspective on managing depression – holistic in the true sense, incorporating multiple medical and non-medical strategies to come at the illness from as many angles as possible.

Mental Health @ Home Books cover: Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis by Ashley L. Peterson

Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis

Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis: Understanding the DSM-5 is available on Amazon and other major retail sites as well as the MH@H Store.  It explains the diagnostic criteria in the DSM-5 in language that is accessible and easy to understand. What really makes this book special is the first-hand narratives from contributors who live with a variety of psychiatric illnesses.  These really bring the diagnostic criteria to life, giving a well-rounded perspective on what each illness is actually like.

Psych Meds Made Simple

Psych Meds Made Simple: How & Why They Do What They Do is available from Amazon and other major retailers and the MH@H Store.  Its aim is to make pharmacology accessible for people who are actually taking (or considering taking) psychiatric medications, in order to empower them to make informed decisions about their treatment. This was my first book, and it has done remarkably well, regularly ranking in Amazon’s top 10 for sales in books on psychopharmacology.
