Overview
Daniel's Way is a memoir by a young author, who describes his traumatic personal experiences. The young author Daniel Nardi experienced decades of depression, anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation. For years, he lived with multiple medication changes, inpatient and outpatient mental health treatment, and even ECT (Electroconvulsive Therapy). In this memoir, Daniel reviews the current research on ASD, as well as his observations on the available treatments for autism and depression. Nardi's book has evoked praise from medical professionals. Registered Nurse Kathryn K. VanDresser writes, "As a retired psychiatric RN, I know that understanding and treating all forms of mental illness is a major problem in this country. I recommend Daniel's Way to all health care providers as well as anyone suffering from mental health issues." Nardi hopes that readers will benefit from this account of his personal experiences, especially if they—or a family member—are struggling with ASD or severe depression. He explains that "I write my story to explain and teach. I want to make sure that anyone and everyone, who has mental health issues can understand more about the system and steps that I took, personally, throughout my journey not only in the psych unit but my experiences with mental health and ASD in general. Writing my story has made me the happiest I've ever felt since middle school. I hope my readers will gain from my experiences whether they are a parent, teenager, or health care worker."
