Napanee, Canada, October 09, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- In support of World Mental Health Day 2014, Assistance Dogs For All is offering a free copy of the new mental health ebook, “Diagnose This”, which ponders the question: What precipitated one woman’s fall from grace? Rather than a religious fall, the author describes the sudden and transformative degeneration of her psyche, then asks for the public’s health in diagnosing the issue. Driven to this extreme by a lack of answers from the medical community, the author set up a closed group on Facebook for readers’ input.
“The range of feedback on the internet has been surprisingly positive,” states the author, Tamara Follett. “One would expect the odious to come oozing out of the woodwork, but that hasn’t been the case.” Follett has managed to screen out extreme meanies through the use of a closed Facebook group; to join, they must prove they have read the book and then answer a simple question designed to highlight their personality. “Nasty people need not apply,” asserts Follett. The process isn’t foolproof, but Follett deletes comments and bans users who are not offering positive support or constructive advice.
What does Follett hope to accomplish with the unusual ebook, which straddles the line between a case study of mental illness and the ever-popular genre, Literature of Personal Suffering? “Answers,” Follett states emphatically, “The medical community has thrown up their hands in exasperation, but my devolution is irrefutable. Someone out there will recognize what is happening to me.”
Assistance Dogs For All is offering the ebook to help raise awareness of mental health issues in the community. The book may be downloaded free from October 10-12:http://www.amazon.ca/Diagnose-THIS-What-precipitated-Grace-ebook/dp/B00NH1I6IM/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1412276684&sr=8-2&keywords=Diagnose+This
