    Mental Health Awareness: Be Kind to Yourself

    Every May, Mental Health Awareness Month draws attention to how mental health plays a factor in our everyday lives. According to the World Health Organization, the COVID-19 pandemic spiked anxiety and depression prevalence by nearly 25% worldwide. We believe that books concerning mental health can help people feel seen and help readers cope with issues they face on a daily basis. In the post below, we have compiled a shortlist of books that can help readers better care for themselves and their loved ones – not just in May, but throughout the entire year.
