Reviews
"Although Mental Health Resilience is written philosophically, with tight analyses of ideas, it is a book that can and should appeal to a wide general, educated readership. The key contribution is the highly sophisticated way Gosselin shows that individual resilience is impacted by social frameworks that can enable or hinder the capacities for individual resilience to be realized. By applying this account of resilience to the case of mental illness, she has made an important contribution." - Steve Matthews, Australian Catholic University
