Mental Health Resources at HPL

May is Mental Health Month! According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, 20% of people experience mental illness at some point. The library is here to help you locate resources about mental health and mental illness. While we are unable to provide medical advice, we can help you find information in a confidential manner. Here are a few recent titles available through the library that may be of interest:
