Recommended Books for Families Dealing with Schizophrenia


#1

Below is a list of good books for families dealing with schizophrenia or the schizophrenia prodrome (the early phase of psychosis before full blown schizophrenia). I have not read all the books, but if I haven’t then they are from a reputable author or organization (Like Oxford University or Yale University, etc.)

The links under the titles is to the book in Libgen.io where you can download them for free by clicking on the title of the book (link) and then on the “GET” link at the top of the next page that comes up.

This site ( libgen.io ) is a “pirate site” so I don’t recommend you use the free download ability unless you are really short of cash and can’t buy the books. Much better to support the authors who wrote the book and to simply buy it at your local bookstore or on Amazon.com.

Here is the list and the links directly to the books:
