Suppose you are one of 35 million adults (14.3%) who suffer from a mental health disorder or 8.5 million adults (24%) affected by a substance use disorder. In that case, you understand the complexities of these disorders. Both coping with and understanding the scope of an illness can be daunting and, even, exhausting.However, self-help workbooks are a great resource that provides you with an opportunity to understand the psychology of a disorder by acknowledging your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They are a fantastic form of self-care and a great way to identify your mental and emotional needs. Here are 10 self-help workbooks that you can use on your journey to recovery:#1.
