21 YA Books To Read During Mental Health Awareness Month
Because taking care of your brain is important.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month
It is focused on educating the public about and breaking the stigma surrounding mental health conditions. The books listed below are all fictional, but are excellent picks for starting a conversation about mental health.
I wanted to make note of the different mental health conditions that are part of these books, so that if you're concerned about potential triggers, you can skip reading about those books. Put your brain first!
Depression and/or suicide: 1-7
Body Image Disorders: 15-17
Bipolar Disorder: 18-21
