This month the Santa Clarita Public Library is raising awareness about mental health, and, more specifically, the conditions that can threaten that health. Eating disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and depression are well-known examples, and the library offers a wide selection of books exploring these topics in depth.
From the adventures of an adolescent facing mental disorders on top of the usual teen angst, to edifying self-help books, there are numerous and varying titles available for checkout.
Many of these titles are currently on display in the Teen Area, and a number of them are listed below. By immersing yourself in these pages, you can learn from a personal perspective what it’s like to experience these mental disorders, and, more importantly, how to deal with them properly.
Be sure to take care of yourself this May with Mental Health Month!
