Reviews

"I've often heard it said that acceptance--recognizing that you have a mental heath condition--is the first step toward overcoming it. But it's not that simple. Self-Acceptance: The Key to Recovery from Mental Illness provides a more complete view that recognizes loss of identity and self-esteem as one of the "most significant casualties people diagnosed with mental illness experience" ... In order to start a journey to recovery it is incredibly important to work "toward a more positive sense of self in the face of illness-related obstacles that threaten it. Self-Acceptance is not a textbook. It's an easy-to-read, self-help workbook intended for people living with depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. It can be useful for individuals, groups or mental health providers. It may be especially valuable for people who as a result of their illness have experienced one or more hospitalizations, unemployment or disruption in education ... Exercises can be done one at a time or by section at your own pace. The workbook's structure and questions bring personal strengths into focus and substitute positive-thinking for negative feelings. It identifies needs and coping strategies. Once exercises are completed, they help provide a personalized roadmap." By Bob Carolla - National Alliance on Mental Illness
