Walter Sanders Jr., a New York-based licensed alcohol and substance abuse counselor who has served in the fields of mental health, employment, and substance abuse counseling, management, and supervision throughout his career, has completed his new book “I’m Not Okay and Neither Are You: Insights on Our Diagnostically Amok Society”: an insightful dissertation on a wide range of mental health issues, from addiction to schizophrenia.

The author writes, “This work has been done to help in the appreciation of the new wave toward labeling or mental-health diagnosis. If you have gone to the provider for headaches but came away with a mental-health diagnosis, or even having experienced anxiety from the loss of an employment opportunity, only to discover you are bipolar? This is the book for you.

This is written with a half of an edge of humor with very serious undertones. The question in this book is, why? Why the overdiagnosis? Why the need for consistent and continuous medication? Is it due to pharmaceutical persuasion from overzealous marketing? What? I will examine some and more of these issues in this small piece that speaks to a very real importance.”

Published by Page Publishing, Walter Sanders Jr.’s engrossing work is a provocative exploration of mental health care in the United States.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “I’m Not Okay and Neither Are You: Insights on Our Diagnostically Amok Society” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
