Aspies on Mental Health – Review


Book Review of

“Aspies on Mental Health”

Speaking for Ourselves

Edited by Luke Beardon and Dean Worton
Jessica Kingsley Publishers
ISBN: 978-1-84905-152-1

To the unknowing/neurotypical we Aspies may appear “odd” or “quirky”, but most of us fight daily battles (to our cost) in trying to conform or appearing to be “normal”. This book reminds me that I am not alone in my Asperger bubble, there is a whole army of us out there.

Along with Luke Beardon’s highly insightful introduction to the book and to each piece of writing, Aspies on Mental Health is an honest and brave account on how life really is.

I am a slow reader, yet I read this book in four sittings – it hits home on many levels, and is touching beyond words.

I wish that it were compulsory reading for all Health Care Professionals including GPs, hospital staff and in particular, all those involved in the world of mental health care.
