"It is not that I am mad, it is only that my head is different from yours." - Charlotte Perkins Gilman, The Yellow Wallpaper
May is symbolic for spring flowers and hopeful stirrings. For those who don't feel so sunshiny, May is also Mental Health Awareness Month.
Mental health issues are broad and far-reaching. If you need guidance with general well-being, healing from trauma, and coping with life challenges, we'd like to do our part in recommending popular nonfiction titles that may offer you new perspectives, methods, or perhaps some needed tough love to help navigate the moments between joy.
Talking with trusted friends, family, and therapists is the most important step in finding mental health reassurance. If you or someone you know is in need of help, please contact the National Suicide and Crises Hotline by dialing or texting 988. Help is available 24 hours a day in English and Spanish.
