Past NAMI Bookshelf Selections


Sharing stories about the lives, struggles and hopes of those living with mental illness can be a powerful eye-opening experience. If you are looking to help raise awareness about mental health you can suggest a book about mental illness to your book club or just read one yourself. - See more at: http://www.nami.org/Get-Involved/What-Can-I-Do-/Books-to-Read#sthash.UKmaoMBg.dpuf
