List of 100 books about mental illness

Open Old BookHello everyone welcome to another one of my new blog posts. As a reminder, this website is there to help raise mental health awareness and also raise awareness of those who care suffering mental ill-health. This time I have decided to do a blog about books delve into the subject of mental illness.

If you wish to see the video about a hundred books about mental illness then click on the video below.

There are many ways to entertain and educate those about mental health. As you may have already known I often make videos about mental illness or about mental health carers. Plus I also do podcasts which also helps raise awareness of carers, and lastly when I get the chance I tend to write a bit about mental health and what mental health carers go through. One day perhaps I would like to write a book about what I have gone through as a carer.

A very famous writer once told me that in order to write one must meet often, so it is a good idea to check and read up on books that help describe how mental ill-health affects people. They will probably come a time when I will look into books that help describe the world of a carer.

To be honest I am not a heavy reader of books but when a book does interest me then I will skim through it, anyway for those who have watched the video feel free to track down one of the books and perhaps you could do a review of the book.

Belief for carers


I know its hard, so unexpected.
You struggle each day and your mind wanders
Where next? who to turn?
You have to believe you can cope

A carer’s journey is filled with doubt
You mind wanders and does not sit still
Sometimes you are alone
But belief can take you through

Each day brings change so fast
Just as much as you can care
Life is tough, but you have to be there
Belief will give you the strength

They need you, we need you
Be their strength and support
They may not show it
But you have to believe you can do it

The clock ticks and you wonder
You wonder about mortality
You wonder about life
Time is all thats left
But with belief more will come each day.
