Joanna reviewed Therese Borchard’s book The Pocket Therapist: An Emotional Survival Guide in this issue. She said it’s a useful (and fun) book for moving toward and maintaining mental and emotional health.

What are your favorite books about mental illness, emotional issues, health, and recovery? Can you share a recommendation that might help someone else?

Which books have been a part of your journey of getting help?

    One of my favorites is Letters Never Sent. If you’re a third culture kid — you grew up in a culture not your own — you will probably find it as healing as I did. http://www.amazon.com/Letters-Never-Sent-Journey-Wholeness/dp/0964642301/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1374244172&sr=8-3&keywords=letters+never+sent
