Is your Mental Health Story A Book or a Brochure

Book lovers – LOVE a good read.

Every book lover loves a good book.  While they may fascinate themselves on science fiction or have a good cry over a sad love story, the end result of reading is not pure entertainment.  For the most part, there is some type of moral standing or lesson to be learned that every good book has to teach. When it comes to self-help books, the emphasis is on helping oneself to improve your situation.

A popular trend among every facet, any genre of health, are the books written by people suffering the ailment.  Within the mental-health community there are thousands, yes thousands of books available about people living with bipolar disorder, depression, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder…You get the point.  Not every story is the same, but most books stumble into the pitfall over-sensationalizing and romanticizing the trauma of mental disorders and the many symptoms. Not every story should be a book. Some should just be brochures.

One common pitfall that I keep reading is the glorifying of illicit drugs and alcohol use during a manic or depressive state.  Instead of using the experience to help others avoid such destructive behavior, some almost seem to encourage it as a rite of passage for mental illness recovery.  …
