Book Recommendations &
Discussion Guides

This page was created to provide young adults with information on the best books out there that have behavioral health and wellness themes! Lead by our Youth Advisory Board members, every other month, we'll share a young adult, mental health-focused book selection for anyone (aged 14 to 25) to read. We'll then share discussion guides that will help you interpret the themes and important plot points of each book. Host book club meetings with your peers OR simply read and interpret the books on your own!

Mental Health in Media Guide
A deep dive into how the media depicts mental health and what needs to change.

Excerpt from the guide: "The term media encapsulates a variety of mediums: art, film, news, literature, social media, and more! At its core, media is a form of communication. We may engage with media to see our stories reflected and validated, or to expand our worldview by interacting with unfamiliar stories.


Media has a big impact on our knowledge and attitudes, especially about topics with which we may not have personal experience. So, fair and accurate portrayals of mental health in media are key to reducing the stigma surrounding mental health, which can further isolate individuals with mental illness and discourage them from seeking help."
