Book list from last night's #mhsm chat

Last night's topic during the #mhsm chat was 'Outstanding people in Mental Health'. I think the general consensus was that #mhsm has assembled a wonderful group of people that are all inspiring in their own ways.

One of the questions asked was for participants of the chat to list some book resources on mental health. These are in no particular order.

6. "Loud In The House of Myself" by Stacy Pershall
7. "A Child Called It" by Dave Pelzer
8. "mind over mood" by Dennis Greenberger (CBT Handbook)
9. "When someone you love is depressed" by Laura Epstein Rosen and Xavier Francisco Amador
10. "Trauma and Recovery" by Judith Herman

Thanks for writing up the list. There's some there that I missed during the chat. Looks like I've got lots of reading ahead of me!

Thank you for the book list. I was visiting family and unavalable during the chat. I am almost out of books to read, so thank you so much! I'm heading to Amazon Marketplace right now!
