NAMI’s “You Are Not Alone” Book Now Available to Pre–Order

Mar 29, 2022

NAMI’s first ever book releasing this fall, “You Are Not Alone: The NAMI Guide to Navigating Mental Health,” is now available to preorder! Written by NAMI Chief Medical Officer Dr. Ken Duckworth with authority and compassion, the book is the essential resource for individuals and families seeking expert guidance on diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

Featuring inspiring, true stories from real people in their own words, Dr. Duckworth interviewed 130 individuals who have been affected by mental illness, both individuals with mental illness and caregivers to share their wisdom and perspectives.

“What makes this book different — the secret sauce — is the ability to learn from more than 100 people who have walked this arduous path toward recovery exactly what helped them and what they believe can help others,” Duckworth said.

The book covers topics such as how to get help, pathways to recovery, the intersection of culture and mental health, and many more important topics to guide any person’s mental health journey.

All proceeds from the book benefit NAMI and its mission.
