Book Description: “Who better to raise teens’ awareness of mental illness and health than the YA authors they admire?” —Booklist (starred review) “[A] much-needed, enlightening book.” —School Library Journal (starred review) Your favorite YA authors including Ellen Hopkins, Maureen Johnson, and more recount their own experiences with mental health in this raw, real, and powerful collection of essays that explores everything from ADD to PTSD. Have you ever felt like you just couldn’t get out of bed? Not the occasional morning, but every day? Do you find yourself listening to a voice in your head that says “you’re not good enough,” “not good looking enough,” “not thin enough,” or “not smart enough”? Have you ever found yourself unable to do homework or pay attention in class unless everything is “just so” on your desk? Everyone has had days like that, but what if you have them every day? You’re not alone. Millions of people are going through similar things. However issues around mental health still tend to be treated as something shrouded in shame or discussed in whispers. It’s easier to have a broken bone—something tangible that can be “fixed”—than to have a mental illness, and easier to have a discussion about sex than it is to have one about mental health. Life Inside My Mind is an anthology of true-life events from writers of this generation, for this generation. These essays tackle everything from neurodiversity to addiction to OCD to PTSD and much more. The goals of this book range from providing a home to those who are feeling alone, awareness to those who are witnessing a friend or family member struggle, and to open the floodgates to conversation.

Book Description: H-E-A-R-T Heart Energy Always Reveals Truth. Life Inside Out offers examples of how living from our hearts will always guide us to the truth of any situation, whether individually or globally. We all have the wisdom within us, but we have forgotten how to access it. We are habituated to living in our heads. The mind is a mixed bag of past fictions. When we judge present situations and relationships from these mental stories, we are not seeing clearly or truthfully. To survive and thrive in the world today, we all need to rediscover our heart mind. We open up by going within to listen to the heart. Each moment is unique, and each individual is unique. Only the heart is equipped to interpret the true meaning of our lives. Life Inside Out presents everyday situations that help to tune out the mind chatter and turn up the volume of our heart wisdom. S. Joy Hart is a student and teacher of metaphysics, world mythologies, philosophy, and spiritual science. Her focus is on finding the common patterns within each, in order to make them relevant to our everyday lives. She lives and writes in northern California.

Book Description: The patient is an ascetically pretty 15½-year-old white female. She is intelligent, fearful, extremely anxious, and depressed. Her rage is poorly controlled and inappropriately expressed. Diagnostic Impression: Program for social recovery in a supportive and structured environment appears favorable. Life Inside In 1967, three months before her sixteenth birthday, Mindy Lewis was sent to a state psychiatric hospital by court order. She had been skipping school, smoking pot, and listening to too much Dylan. Her mother, at a loss for what else to do, decided that Mindy remain in state custody until she turned eighteen and became a legal, law-abiding, "healthy" adult. Life Inside is Mindy's story about her coming-of-age during those tumultuous years. In honest, unflinching prose, she paints a richly textured portrait of her stay on a psychiatric ward -- the close bonds and rivalries among adolescent patients, the politics and routines of institutional life, the extensive use of medication, and the prevalence of life-altering misdiagnoses. But this memoir also takes readers on a journey of recovery as Lewis describes her emergence into adulthood and her struggle to transcend the stigma of institutionalization. Bracingly told, and often terrifying in its truths, Life Inside is a life-affirming memoir that informs as it inspires.

Book Description: Nineteen years ago, while still in his twenties, Erwin James was sentenced to life imprisonment. Over the past three years, he has written about prison life for the Guardian. This book brings together these pieces. In A Life Inside, James writes about learning the who, what, why and when of the prison world. He describes the struggle to keep sane; the dynamics of paranoia and solidarity between men forced into years of co-existence; and the commitment that it takes to prepare for life outside. Along the way, James introduces us to other prisoners. There is Rinty, the big Dundonian and enthusiastic fan of Antiques Roadshow; Cody, the elderly former sergeant who still protests his innocence after twenty-four years; and Felix the Gambler - serial schemer and sometime Buddhist. It is through their stories, told with humour and warmth, the James reveals the reality of prison life.

Book Description: A scientist who has been originally trained as a biologist and has always been interested in life on Earth and outside the universe proposes a project to investigate the presence of a different form of life in the universe. This scientist has fifty years’ experiences in different aspects of life. He also has updated knowledge about our planet, our galaxy, our universe, and other possible universes. He is familiar with the latest findings and improvements in the field of theoretical physics and investigations that had been so far done and had been focused on finding lives in other solar systems. To obtain approval and funds for his project, he contacts one of the highly advanced scientific societies in the United States and presents a series of scientific talks. In his presentations, he states, “Why, out of over two million different species living on Earth, only humans (Homo sapiens) are considered the most advanced one, and why, if we are looking for lives outside our planet, are we always looking for some sort of humanlike creature?” He tries to convince the scientists that there must be billions of other types of beings in our universe and other universes. These different types of lives can be much smaller or much larger than us. They can be much more intelligent and highly advanced creatures when compared with humans on Earth. They may not necessarily need water, moderate temperature, simple energy sources, etc. They may not reproduce the way that we do and may not even die, which is the final chapter in our lives. Finally, he will convince several distinguished scientists to support his project. With the help of several additional young scientists who are experts in different fields of science, in a highly advanced scientific institution, finally they prove that lives could be much simpler and at the same time more advanced than us. By doing extensive research, they finally find creatures that are extremely smaller than us and start communicating with them. Although this book presents a science fiction story, the processes by which the scientists discover these small creatures are completely and purely based on the latest and updated scientific findings, which means the story may become a true story in the coming years.

Book Description: My unstructured upbringing, and cares to the wind attitude, led to my frequent incarceration, from childhood to adulthood, it’s a disturbing story, which is primarily aimed at the adult reading audience, who enjoy reading about reality situations and crime. I have always been a reader, and to a large extent, that helped me become a self taught person. Born on the banks of the Colorado River in Arizona, and raised up in the Marcos De Niza barrio projects in South Phoenix, I experienced the injustices of the cotton fields, Maricopa County Juvenile Detention Home, and Arizona State Industrial School at Fort Grant, Arizona. I wandered the desperate streets of Los Angeles, and the forlorn railroad tracks, alone, like a lost person without a purpose in life. I was locked up in the jails of Phoenix, and Los Angeles, before winding up in the California State penitentiary system. Upon my release, I struggled to stay out of the pen, and took the jobs that society at large would never want to take. Through numerous personal tragedies, incarcerations, and unfortunate circumstances, I lost control of my life. No one was ever able to change my destructive behavior. The changes when they occurred came from within me, when I could no longer cope, with the situations I had cast my self into. Looking back, I can now see what I couldn’t see, during those hopeless time periods. I was very fortunate, to finally be able to leave that life behind me, through relationships that believed in me, and successfully worked, and built myself a civil service work career, from which I retired. I now spend my days enjoying life’s simple pleasures, after all my previous tragic missteps. My objective in life now, is to become an accomplished writer.

Book Description: Frustrated by the often unrealistic standards of beauty presented by today’s media, many women have become trapped in a never-ending pattern of chronic dieting. Daily they endure destructive self-talk such as “I can’t eat that or I’ll get fat” or “If I could just lose a few more pounds everything would be better.” Chronic dieters may be any shape or size but they have one thing in common: They are often left to suffer alone with an undiagnosed “sub-clinical” eating disorder. Such sub-clinical disorders include eating habits that are unusual, even unhealthy, but do not fit the technical classifications of anorexia or bulimia. Addressing the many dimension of “chronic dieting,” Life Inside the “Thin” Cage offers a wake-up call and practical steps to those who need healing. Readers will find personal stories, insights into their secret patterns and habits, reassurance that they are not alone, checklists, self-tests, and, best of all, a new road to emotional, physical, mental and spiritual freedom.
