You Are Not Alone: The NAMI Guide to Navigating Mental Health--With Advice from Experts and Wisdom from Real People and Families

Written with authority and compassion, this 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.

Millions of people in the United States are affected by mental illness every year. The Covid-19 pandemic not only caused new or aggravated symptoms in people, but further exposed the shortcomings of the American mental health system. Despite advances in telehealth, the healthcare industry remains chaotic, underfunded, and often inaccessible, and many people are asking themselves the same questions: What does it mean when different doctors give me different diagnoses? What if my insurance company won't cover my treatment? Will I have to be on medication my whole life? Will I ever feel better? Too many of us are confused, afraid, and overwhelmed. Families and friends are often left in the dark about how best to help their loved ones, how to deal with financial and logistical issues, and how to handle the emotional challenges of loving someone who is suffering.

You Are Not Alone is here to offer help. This singular resource--the first and only book fully supported by the National Alliance on Mental Illness--is a powerful reminder that help is here, and we are not alone.

Ken Duckworth, MD, is the chief medical officer of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), and has been the medical director since 2003. He is also assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and an adjunct clinical assistant professor of health and policy management at the Boston University School of Public Health. Dr. Duckworth has served as a board member of the American Association for Community Psychiatry, and worked for years as a psychiatrist on an assertive community treatment team. He lives near Boston, Massachusetts.
