Nonfiction and anthologies aren't usually my thing, but this nonfiction anthology about mental health is good! As with all anthologies, some essays/stories are better than others. However, in (Don't) Call Me Crazy, there were only two that I skimmed, and that is more because the writing style wasn't to my liking-- not because the content was unimportant or trite.
People who struggle with mental illness will find (Don't) Call Me Crazy a mirror and find comfort in the time-and-time-again fact of what is written on every page that they aren't alone. Not everyone's experience with depression or an eating disorder or anxiety or PTSD will look the same, and that multiple authors are writing on the same mental illnesses highlight that fact. HOWEVER, that's not to say that some mental illnesses are not covered. Kelly Jensen has done an excellent job in curating the essays and making sure there is a wide array and diversity of authors from straight to anywhere and everyone on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum, from a variety of ethnic and racial backgrounds, and from up and down the socioeconomic hierarchy. Because everyone is affected by mental illness.
People who have not experienced mental illness first hand will have the "window" experience. (Don't) Call Me Crazy does a wonderful job of explaining how, often, receiving that diagnosis is comforting in the fact that's it not something we're making up. But that we are more than our diagnosis, too; it doesn't define us.
I'm very proud of the work that is being done to make mental illness and its treatment less taboo, and I have a feeling that (Don't) Call Me Crazy will help teens find comfort and/or the courage to get the help they need-- or be a positive ally to a friend who may be suffering from mental illness.
