Ibland Mår Jag Inte Så Bra - Thérese Lindgren

A year or so ago, Lindgren, one of Sweden's major influencers, signed this autobiographical book about her mental disorder. After a burnout, she was diagnosed with General Anxiety Syndrome, which she writes about here in a candid, engaging, personal yet fairly distanced and well-informed way.

This was an easy read - not exactly an erudite or scientific approach - and yet important insofar as it's addressing an audience who probably desperately needs information on the subject. (Mental health problems affect one in ten young people, according to www.mentalhealth.org.uk, and yet an impressive 70% of these kids have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.)
