A comforting and useful resource for anyone who’s struggling emotionally and looking for help―from the nation’s leading community-based nonprofit that addresses the needs of those living with mental illness

It can be extremely hard to figure out what’s going on in our own heads when we are suffering—when we feel alone and unworthy and can’t stop our self-critical inner voice. And it’s even more difficult to know where to go for answers.

This book is a perfect first step. Here you’ll find clear, honest, reassuring information about all the most common mental illnesses and what you can do to find help and to practice self-care.

Where to Start features:
  • jargon-free information about all the most common mental illnesses, including a first self-assessment test;
  • tips on how to get professional help and how to talk about your mental health with friends and family;
  • essential tools, including handy worksheets and DIY mental health content; and
  • insightful, funny drawings by acclaimed cartoonist Gemma Correll.

"The warm, conversational tone and straightforward, accessible language welcome readers to explore the text as they wish and establish autonomy over their wellness. Readers will find an abundance of beneficial information . . . A valuable, comprehensive manual for navigating mental health struggles." —Kirkus
