Staff Picks Reading List

“We read to know we’re not alone” -William Nicholson, Shadowlands

We have decided to include here a list of “staff picks” meant to inform, move, and inspire you. We hope that these materials will increase awareness about behavioral health disorders – what they are and what they aren’t – and provide some insight into the struggles and accomplishments; sorrows and joys of your fellow community members and their families as they journey through life and through recovery.

In sharing, we hope that some of you will be motivated to take positive action to combat stigma; to support organizations in our midst that are working to heal those in need; and to help make mental health a priority for everyone in our community.
