Books and mental health - Mind
Mind is the National Association for Mental Health in the UK and campaigns on behalf of those with mental illness.
On the back of Mind Book of the Year award, Mind is asking readers to name any books they have read that have inspired them, helped them, made them smile or given them added insight into the world of mental health. For example, a moving memoir, a factual read about a disorder or a self-help manual that helped the reader get through a difficult time in life.
Readers are being asked for the title, author and publisher of the book and no more than 200 words about how it made a difference to their life or the life of someone they know. Entries can give name and location, or remain anonymous.
The collection of replies will be published in the next edition of Mind news (September/October 2008), with a deadline of 16 July 2008.
