Book Lists

Hidden Lives: Guest List by Brindle & Glass

In recognition of Mental Illness Awareness Week, which began Sunday, Sept. 30, we've put together a list of Canadian books that bring awareness to the various issues - from initial diagnosis and treatment options to the way it is handled by the health care system - and aim to break down the stigma that continues to surround mental illness. These works, most of them memoirs, offer keen insight into the lives of those suffering from mental illness as well as the lives of those around them. We have also included several novels - including a couple for young adults - to highlight how mental illness is dealt with in literature as another way to bring awareness to one of the most devastating of human tribulations.
