A Fans Recollection from the Perspective of
An Asperger and Depression Survivor
By Tim Price
Key Themes: Mental Health, Aspergers, Depression
The book tries to explain the reasons why I was ill and, by combining the knowledge of mental health and care in the community, how I became better over time.
I was given a lot of help to overcome depression and this new book will give the reader a broader insight into my writing. Combining the knowledge of being ill twice with depression and the recovery process.
I have covered my ideas about care in the community, including my proposals for the ideal facilities for day centres, Community Action Plans and a National Care Service to work alongside the National Health Service.
I have mentioned education, ways to improve services and lots of other aspects of mental health that I consider relevant to the issue.
