Mental Health Awareness Week
We’ve been marking Mental Health Awareness Week this week with posts on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts. One in four people in the UK experience a mental health problem each year, and it’s vital that we open ourselves up to discussing these issues, so we can ask for help when we need it and offer support to people around us who are coping with problems that may not be easy to see from the outside.
This Instagram shelfie shows a selection of our books covering mental health issues. From Wendy Green’s Anxiety: A Self-Help Guide to Feeling Better and Keith Souter’s Understanding and Dealing with Depression, to Emma Woolf’s Letting Go and Positively Primal, our list covers a huge range of topics. We also have books such as Mindfulness for Every Day and How to Be Confident, to help make everyday life that little bit easier and more enjoyable.
Finally, in The Other Side of Silence, psychiatrist Linda Gask recounts her experience of dealing with depression from both sides of the consulting room.
We are proud to publish books that help make people’s lives better, and we hope that their messages bring hope and comfort to readers everywhere.
