Sixteen YA books that get mental health right

At the BN Teen Blog Dahlia Adler collected recommendations for her collection of sixteen YA books that get mental health right. One title that made the grade:
OCD Love Story, by Corey Ann Haydu

OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu is the best representation of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder I’ve come across in YA lit. Haydu smashes OCD stereotypes and presents a real, raw look at the myriad of ways OCD actually manifests. She creates full, round characters who are so much more than the disorder that at times takes over their lives, and weaves an unconventional, yet believable, romance that will have readers rooting for a happily ever after.
