Mental Health @ Home Books (MH@H Books) is the publishing imprint that’s associated with the Mental Health @ Home 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 Mental Health @ Home.
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 Mental Health @ Home 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 on Amazon, regularly ranking in the top 10 for sales in books on psychopharmacology.
Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis
Making Sense of Psychiatric Diagnosis: Understanding the DSM-5 is my second book and is now available on Amazon and other major retail sites as well as the Mental Health @ Home Store. It explains the diagnostic criteria in the DSM-5 in language that is accessible and easy to understand for anybody.
What really makes this book special is that it includes first-hand narratives from contributors who live with a variety of psychiatric illnesses. This narratives really bring the diagnostic criteria to life, giving a well-rounded perspective on what each diagnosis is actually like.
Managing the Depression Puzzle
Managing The Depression Puzzle is upcoming from MH@H Books in 2020. As with my previous books, it will combine professional knowledge with personal experience. It will take 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.
