    Yeah, first make yourself happy, then only you can help others to be happy and relaxed. This book might talk about a real issue in our country. I can’t wait to know more about the book. Let me buy this from Amazon.

      Exactly Shreemayee. It is not selfish for caretakers to put themselves first. I hope you like the books as much as I did. 🙂

    I can’t even begin to imagine the kind of strength one needs to have or develop to deal with these situations. When it comes to family it’s hard and harder when mental health issues arise

    This collection is a gem for all of us. I loved the book’s title, Sepia Leaves. Your review and the bookish talks evoked a lot of interest in me to pick these books soon. Where most of the people feel shy in talking about mental health issues,these authors write for us and brought their voice loud. Kudos. Thanks for sharing.

    Mental health is still very much unexplored in India. It is still a taboo to openly talk about ones struggles in taking care of a loved one with a mental disorder. I am glad you wrote about these books.

    This topic has to be addressed as much as Mental health itself. I am sorry I didn’t go deep into it as I am still not strong enough. But am sure ur recommendation is very good

    Lovely review. I have seen firsthand what it is to care for someone with mental issues. The caregiver too needs to de-stress regularly in order not to collapse.

    While the complete attention is always on the recovering patient almost no one gives a thought to caregivers. Glad you thought of them, these reads should help.

    Very apt post, Ritu. We also need to talk about the caregivers, this aspect is hardly even thought about. I am surely going to put When a Loved .ne Has a Different Mind by Jerry Pinto in my TBR.

    A brilliant account of the books written for the mental health of the caregivers of chronic mental patients. It becomes intolerable to witness the near one suffer from mental illness but self-care is equally important.

    I did not know there were so many great books for mental health. It’s great that you are spreading awareness. Books help alot when one is in delimma and wants to understand with self help.

    One cannot understand person feelings but one can always try to understand what goes through it and these recommendations for the caregivers is the light in the tunnel, so that caregivers choose the right set of words to comfort them. I would choose ‘ A Book of Light’ to start with to understand more about it.
