Microsoft word - mdsc recommended reading list.docAn important first step in gaining control of your illness, or in understanding and supporting a loved one, is to learn all you can about mood disorders and their treatment. Being informed about mood disorders allows you to be an active participant in your treatment and make informed decisions regarding your care in partnership with your health care provider. We have also included ‘first person’ accounts, which we feel helps to create a profound sense empathy and understanding. Seeing your experience mirrored in the experience of others breaks the isolation of mental illness and instills a healing sense of “you are not alone”. Learning from the experience of others will also help you avoid the common pitfalls, which accompany the challenging journey from illness to health. We have tried to provide a selected a books from a wide array of perspectives and include Canadian authors. Let us know if you have recommendations you would like to see added to the list. Disclaimer: The following books represent a diverse range of opinions on mood disorders. The MDSC does not necessarily support or endorse the books and/ or the opinions expressed in any of these publications. We encourage you to apply critical thinking in evaluating your readings and work collaboratively with your health care providers prior to making decisions which impact treatment.
