NAMI’s First–Ever Book, “You Are Not Alone” by Ken Duckworth, M.D., Debuts

Sep 20, 2022

The first-ever book from the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) written by NAMI Chief Medical Officer Ken Duckworth, M.D., was published today by Zando. The book is titled “You Are Not Alone: The NAMI Guide to Navigating Mental Health ― With Advice from Experts and Wisdom from Real People and Families.”

“You Are Not Alone” stands apart from other mental health advice books by sharing lived experiences based on interviews with more than 130 named people, aged 16-100 — along with answers from top experts to dozens of frequently asked questions — making it a singular resource for anyone beginning a mental health journey, or their loved ones. NAMI’s hope is that this book can help people find that critical help and support sooner and make recovery more accessible to those trying to find it.
