I stumbled across Carolyn’s post with reviews about fictional books that happen to feature depictions of anxiety and depression. I especially love her intro:
“Anxiety, depression, and panic disorder are featured in these recommended books. They are, in my opinion, well-depicted with realism and authenticity. Often, mental illness is isolating, and these books remind those who suffer from these disorders that they are not alone. They also help those who haven’t experienced these disorders to understand what it might be like to live with them.”
She’s got a good collection of novels if you’re looking for something to read in the coming months. Or if you’ve read something that does an exceptionally good job of depicting characters dealing with mental health issues, let us know in the comments.
