Building Self-Esteem: A Self-Help Guide. Recovering Your Mental Health Series.
Copeland, Mary Ellen
Low self-esteem is a constant companion for too many people, especially those who experience depression, anxiety, phobias, psychosis, delusional thinking, or who have an illness or a disability. Low self-esteem keeps people from enjoying life, doing the things they want to do, and working toward personal goals. This booklet suggests ideas for things individuals can do to feel better about themselves--to raise their self-esteem. It contains information, ideas, and strategies that people from all over the country have found to be helpful in relieving and preventing troubling feelings and symptoms. The information in this booklet can be used safely along with other health care treatment. (GCP)
