Books with Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, and Personality Disorder Rep

List number 3 of my Mental Health series is Books featuring Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, and Personality Disorders. I would really love to make this list bigger so please let me know if you have any recommendations.

  • If you see something that is in a wrong category let me know. A lot of books don’t get into specifics in the descriptions and trying to find out what the rep was got a little difficult in some cases.
  • Please feel free to share.
  • A lot of these books fall into more than one category please keep that in mind.
  • Trigger Warnings: The following books may have sensitive subjects please read at your discretion.
  • There is a link to each book below.
  • Is there a book I’m missing? (I’m sure there are a ton) Leave a rec below and I’ll add it in.

  1. Love this list! I need more diverse reads in my life and I’m pretty sure disorders like the ones mentioned in this list aren’t all too common in books. At least.. I can’t remember coming across them all that often in the past.

    The only one I can think of, though, is All the Little Lights by Jamie McGuire. There’s a personality disorder there – saying which one, would totally ruin the book though. 🙂

    If you do want to know, I figured out the plot because I saw a certain movie where the same disorder occurred – Split. 🙂
