Mental health is a level of psychological well-being or an absence of mental illness - the "psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment".
According to the latest stats, more than Billion people are experiencing mental health issues. But not everyone is aware of it. It can be you, your family members, your friends, or someone you know. Every single individual on this planet can have a mental health issue. Then why don't we do anything about it?
The A-Z of Mental Health reflects light on multiple mental health issues and how it can affect your life in one way or another. The author shares his opinions on multiple topics like - Armed Forces & Mental Health, Borderline Personality Disorder, Consent to Treatment, Depression, Educational Institutes & Mental Health, Faith Healing & Mental Health, Gym, Exercise & Mental Health, Human Rights & Mental Health, Jokes & Mental Health, Key Phrases of Mental Health, Long Term Illness & Mental Health, Mental Health Care Act, 2017, National Institute of Mental Health & Neuro-Sciences, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Pets & Mental Health, Quintessential Relationships & Mental Health, Repercussion of a Suicide, Self Harm, Technology & Mental Health, Unfounded Diagnoses, Volunteering & Mental Health, Workplace Mental Health, XXX and Mental Health, Yesteryears of Depression, ZZZ and Mental Health.
We all experience stress and depression in our day to day life. But not every depression is a mental problem. It can be for a certain time period and will vanish automatically. The book focusses on the extreme part of mental health problems with first-hand solutions by the author who has experienced mental illness himself.
I found the ideas and solutions mentioned in the book completely out of the box. It will change the way you think and look at the world. If the contents of this book are consumed properly, it can help you or your loved one take the BIG step in challenging mental problems.
The name of the book is inspired from an annual blogging challenge named A-Z Challenge. I would recommend reading 1 chapter every day. It would hardly take 10 minutes to read. Then, you can write down your thoughts in a dairy and start sharing the knowledge to someone who needs it. Maybe you can just share the information on Facebook, maybe you can tweet or blog about it. A simple step you take now can change someone's life.
Overall, I think The A-Z of Mental Health is a must read for everyone experiencing any mental health issue. Even if you are not facing any issue, I believe you must read it once. So, go ahead and buy this book from Amazon now!

The author has spent almost 100 hours going through about 21 different research articles and journals. An effort to keep the language simple and understandable was the second most important issue of this collection. One thing is for sure, you will end up becoming a more knowledgeable person by the time you finish reading this book.
