By SHARON KNOWLTON RN on October 21, 2005
Format: Paperback
This resource sheds a lot of the myths and misconceptions surrounding mental illness. I would highly recommend this book to any one of any faith who is personally struggling with this issue or has an affected family member. The author's own daughter is affected so he really speaks from experience and the heart on this matter

As a memeber of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints dealing with depression my struggle has been hard at times. After reading this book I recommended it to all of my family. Many times they have told me that they don't understand why I feel the way I do or what is going on in my head. At times I thought the author was speaking about me specifically. I also like reading a book that had an LDS perspective. It was reassuring to hear that because I haven't been "healed" of my illness does not necessarily mean that I have too little faith.

Maybe good information for families of those suffering with mental illness. But as a sufferer myself, it just made me feel worse. I steady felt terrible guilt about how my depression affects my family, but seeing it in print just added to that burden. There is valuable information in the book, but it wasn't for me.

Format: Paperback
This book is a wonderful resource for Latter-Day Saints (or any person for that matter) attempting to understand mental illness and/or suffering and why they are part of the Earthly existence. Morrison sets forth a broad picture of common mental illnesses and weaves in real life stories, including very personal experiences from his own family. I highly recommend this book.
