About the Book


Dr. Sonnee Weedn has created a workbook specifically designed to support and optimize the mental health of recovering people. These 8 Ways were identified and researched by the well-known psychiatrist and psychologist, Dr. Roger Walsh, professor at UC Irvine Medical School. Dr. Walsh’s exhaustive research into the usefulness and easily available, though often overlooked, therapeutic lifestyle changes (TLCs) that support recovery and optimize, mental health and mental resilience, has been operationalized into an easy to follow workbook. In it you can set your intention for personal success, identify support systems, and embark on implementing and/or improving the various categories identified in any order that suits you. You will feel better! You REALLY will! This is one of the best relapse prevention tools available!
