Because it took me a very long time to do all of my research I am going to give you a list of many of the books that I used or read on my journey. I do not expect you to use the same books and this list is for information and reference as well as to be helpful.  Many of the spiritual books that I read are listed but there are lots that I have not listed. I feel that spirituality is very much a personal choice as far as your relationships with yourself and with God. This list is merely to show you which books I used and to give you some examples of what is out there. I have personally read most of these books since I did a tremendous amount of research while putting together my own recovery program. A few I added to round out the resources. 

I do remember at one point that I just put all of the books down and stopped reading for the most part. Enough already. At some point I just started to want to listen, to experience and to feel what was happening. I wanted to have a personal relationship with God and myself and those relationships didn't really come out of any book. Also, at one point I wanted to be surprised and not have any expectations of what might be out there. I  wanted to see what happened as it happened and not from knowing ahead of time what might or could happen.

MENTAL HEALTH WORKBOOKS

 

Here are some suggestions for workbooks that some people might want to consider. I have used workbooks and those are included here. The workbooks listed here but not in any other category in this book section are those which I have not used. Since I found the workbooks I used helpful, I decided to add a list some of the workbooks available that could be helpful for you. I do not make any recommendations as to any of these products because I have not used these sources. I am only listing them so that people know that this is yet another option to help themselves. I think that some of these workbooks offer ways to learn coping skills, or how to cope with stress and handle life’s challenges, learn about self-esteem, learn about boundaries, learn how to manage your anger, your trauma and many other subjects, if one is willing to take the time and the effort to help themselves. Some of these skills can be learned with the help of trained counselors, psychologists and in group therapy and outpatient programs. I think it becomes an individual choice as to what works best for each person and how they want to go about their recovery. These books offer one more option and they are put together by professionals with experience.

I used workbooks for anger, self-esteem and DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) to a small extent as well as a journal to help me. I used the journal a lot and I found it was a good way to get my feelings out of me. I also wrote on the computer, wrote letters but never mailed (for the most part, some I did) and just the very simple act of getting the feelings out made a big difference and helped me to work through my feelings. I made drawings of my dreams and what I thought my anger or feelings looked like. I also talked and talked and talked to God and to myself on a daily basis. That made a big difference.

I located these workbooks on www.Amazon.com.  Since this is only a small sampling of what is available, I suggest taking a look around at the selection and inside each book first before purchasing to see if it would interest you. Most of the time you can browse through the beginning of the book, including the table of contents, the foreward and perhaps the first chapter. While I do believe that learning new skills and other techniques help to manage depression, ultimately I believe that it is a matter of what your spirit is trying to tell you. Each of your symptoms is an attempt to convey a message to you from yourself about what is happening. Medications, drugs, alcohol, shock therapy or any other substance or method that dulls your pain, damages your brain and disconnects you from yourself will buy you time but the symptoms will keep trying to surface in some way.  If one continues to numb or block out the symptoms pretty soon you will not be able to feel much of anything. It is possible to learn to deal with the pain and get stronger.

I feel that until you have a discussion with yourself and really discover what is causing your pain and the suppression of yourself, that you will only continue to manage symptoms and never really fully recover from your illness. I think that these workbooks can help you begin to get in touch with yourself and what you really feel and how to protect yourself and that is a very good start.
