Resources for Taking Care of the Mental Health of a High-Achiever

These resources were recommended by Psychologist and Mental Health Ambassador Vassia Sarantopoulou. She is also the founder of Anti-Loneliness, a company offering mental health services in The Netherlands and also worldwide.

On February 24th, WIL is hosting a workshop on how to take care of the mental health of a high-achiever. Our speaker, Vassia Sarantopoulou has recommended us various resources that you can take a look at prior to or after the workshop to learn more about the subject. We hope you will find them helpful.

A note on buying books: If you are purchasing through Amazon, consider supporting a charity via Amazon Smile. If you have the option to buy books from a local bookstore, it can make the world of difference to them. Personally, I like Stanza Bookstore in The Hague. They are a small independent and female owned bookstore that will deliver personally and free from cost in The Hague area.
