The Head and the Heart: Mental Health in Romance

Hi Smooches! On this episode, we’re recommending romances with mental health themes, whether the characters are explicitly diagnosed with a mental illness or living with a neurodivergence, or are coded as such. If you have mental health recs you’d like to share, we’d love to add them to our list! Let’s get into it.
