Mental Illnesses and Disorders: Awareness and Understanding

Nonfiction children's series

Written by Hilary Poole

Mason Crest Publishers, 2016

The lives of millions of kids are touched by mental illness. And yet it’s all too common for kids to feel like they are alone with their problems. Whether you’re seeking information for family, friends, or yourself, these books help explain the challenges faced by people with mental disorders. 

"This series is intended for younger middle grades, with its numerous real-life examples and scenarios greatly assisting in explaining difficult concepts. The second-person narration speaks simply yet candidly and directly to readers. Content is very briefly, yet adequately, conveyed, and the volumes’ educator-friendly format allows for either whole-class use or as a quick and concise resource for reports."

—Lisa Hazlett, VOYA
