Women and Mental Illness (Fiction and Nonfiction)

A list borrowed from Goodreads about books touching on women and mental illness. The list is missing about a hundred from the original list, honestly just because I got tired of making this, hahaha - visit the original list to get the full listing. I also excluded a few books I thought to be inappropriate for the list's theme. I have not read every book on this list, so I cannot vouch for their treatment of mental illness - reader discretion is advised.
