    Textbook. Yes, it was a textbook. I wasn't sure what to think when this was assigned for my mental health class when I was working on my masters, but I love this book to this day. It gives great literary examples of mental health diagnosis and what they look like in a non-office setting. I have read through these stories several times since graduation and keep it on a shelf in my office to skim when I get the urge. If you are interested in mental health, this is a great place to start learning.
