This is a powerful statement made by Rachel in the introduction to her list.
“I believe more than ever we are only as sick as our secrets. By sharing our stories and reading others, we rid the stigma associated with mental illness and addiction and we can begin to heal and thrive.”
If you’re looking for some Summertime reading, her list includes some old, some new, some well-known, and some not as well-known memoirs on it.
Have you read any of them? What did you think? Is there a particular memoir that includes details of a mental health issue that you would recommend?
