Show Me All Your Scars:
True Stories of Living with Mental Illness
Edited by Lee Gutkind
RC464.A1 S563 2016
New Arrivals Island, 2nd floor

This searing collection of personal stories illuminates the struggles, triumphs, and everyday realities of living with mental illness, whether the authors’ own illness or that of a loved one. The stories here are raw, real, and moving–as the author of the forward writes, “with each essay, I met a new acquaintance who quickly felt like a good friend.”

Books like this one help protest the silence and stigma that surrounds mental illness. Living with mental illness is not easy but sharing our stories can only help to advance the conversation.
