Spotlight On Indie Author Ashley L Peterson
indie author Ashley L Peterson

Ashley's first career was as a pharmacist, but she chose to give that up to become a nurse. While completing her nursing degree she realized that mental health resonated more with her than any other area, and she has worked in the field for her entire 14+ year career. She has published papers in a number of academic nursing journals. She was first diagnosed with depression in 2007, and since then she has been passionate about speaking up to challenge the stigma around mental illness. She completed a Master of Psychiatric Nursing degree despite two hospitalizations while she was in grad school. She is the author of the blog Mental Health @ Home, where she talks candidly about all things mental health-related. You can find the blog at mentalhealthathome.org.

Psych Meds Made Simple: How & Why They Do What They Do

People living with mental illness are often left out of the loop when it comes to understanding how exactly medications work. This book will explain pharmacology in a simplified way to help you understand the effects, both positive and negative, of psych meds, and why these effects occur. It's everything you didn't realize you wanted to know about medications! The book begins with the essentials of pharmacology and moves on to cover all the major classes of psychiatric medications. You'll learn why one medication in a particular class might be a better fit for you than another. Are you having weight gain from your medication? You'll find out why, and what other medications might be less likely to have the same side effect. I've pulled together what I've learned in my training as a nurse and (former) pharmacist and years of clinical experience, added in my personal perspective from having taken many of these medications, and distilled it down to the essential elements you need to know to take charge of your own health and illness.
