Months-long therapy wait-lists. Out-of-pocket costs. Online misinformation. There are more barriers than ever to accessing reliable mental health care—and when your mental health is suffering, you need help now

This book, written by three practicing therapists, is your comprehensive mental health first-aid kit. Drawing on the techniques they use with their clients, they offer a holistic understanding of more than twenty all-too-common life challenges, plus compassionate, evidence-based strategies for when you’re struggling. Even better, these are techniques that anyone can do at home.

In each chapter, you’ll find:

  • what the research says about the issue
  • coping mechanisms that are used in actual therapy rooms
  • step-by-step guidance on using these strategies in real life and overcoming common obstacles
  • tips for communicating about the issue with your loved ones

You’ll also find practical advice on accessing professional help, deciding if a therapist is the right fit for you (and breaking up with them if they’re not), and paying for therapy.

You Will Get Through This illuminates the road to wellness so you can take charge of your own healing.

Wow! This book is awesome! I actually like how week laid out and brief the sections are. When you are dealing with poor mental health, focus is often a challenge and this book is easy to read and nicely divided into sections. Of course, you should always seek professional help when required but this book is absolutely excellent if you are just starting to explore helping yourself/getting help. Great resource!

This is a really great look into mental health disorders and what you can do to help cope with them.
I liked how in-depth this book is and how it even has strategies for children.
There are a lot of facts and research that have gone into this and tips to help you feel less alone.
This is a great resource for anyone suffering with mental health and also for others to know how to help them.

Thank you NetGalley for this ARC.

This book was well-structured and easy to follow. I liked that it broke down common diagnoses with small suggestions for managing symptoms. I also really appreciated that there were sections dedicated to talking about society, sexuality, physical health, and additional resources. This feels more comprehensive and holistic than some of the other self-help books that I've seen for assisting with managing mental health symptoms.

This seems like a book every household should own in case someone needs to dip into it. It’s very concise so is more a starting point than a cure but it give tips and advice to adults and children for many of life’s issues. Some of the more specific advice around navigating healthcare systems won’t apply outside the US.

You Will Get Through This is a comprehensive book taking you through varying common mental health conditions and conditions which affect mental health in the realms of mental health, social health, sexual health and physical health before a final paragraph summarising how you can get help. It is clear and concise, offering what research says about each, coping mechanisms recommended (and led) by professionals, guidance on using the strategies in life, and tips for communicating about it with loved ones. I really enjoyed the way it was written. Each section follows the same structure, the content is easy to understand and I liked that it offered options to help children and recommendations of other helpful texts and resources. One thing to note is that it is written with references to the US healthcare system. The tips and tricks are applicable worldwide but small parts will only be relevant to readers in America.

You Will Get Through This is a good resource for those struggling with mental health issues, but I feel like the information presented was very minimal and entry-level. This is a great book if you're beginning to research an issue you're having but isn't going to get into the meat and potatoes of your disorder.

I was dismayed that many of the mental health issues seemed to be lumped together and weren't as specific as they could have been. I feel like with more detail, this could be an even better resource. Rather than just 'panic disorder' or 'generalized anxiety disorder' other issues like OCD could have been added and more information on how different mental health issues cross over each other and can be misrepresented. For example, OCD is often misdiagnosed as GAD and they are very different with entirely different treatments, etc.

If the only thing you know about mental health is that there’s something that feels bad about yours, this book is for you. It contains 101-level info about lots of common mental health diagnoses (anxiety, depression, PTSD) and other reasons people seek out professional help (sleep problems, loneliness, and infertility and pregnancy loss). You’ll also get info on how to navigate the mental health system, which can be overwhelming even in the best of times. While the info for any single topic is pretty birds-eye, if you see yourself reflected on these pages, the authors leave you with plenty of ideas for where to go next for more in-depth info.

A very nice introduction to lots of common things that might be affecting your mental health. Great info and nicely laid out sections make it easy to read.

"You Will Get Through This: A Mental Health First-Aid Kit - Help for Depression, Anxiety, Grief, and More" is a good foundational book for people who are beginning their journey into mental health awareness or for individuals grappling with the concept of needing help.

The authors made a great choice in balancing scientific jargon with everyday language. It would familiarize readers with common terms they might encounter in a professional setting without overwhelming them.

Issues are divided into various chapters, each with multiple sections. It starts with a discussion of symptoms, followed by therapy options—though this section is focused on the US, it might not be as helpful for those outside the country. The practical advice in the coping strategies sections is immediately applicable. The tips on assisting others are insightful, and the resource lists offer a pathway to further education and support.
