Disclaimer:  This list of resources and tips for starting out on a journey towards mental wellness was created by a mental health therapist. That said, nothing in this list or on this site should be used to diagnose an individual with a mental disorder without that person being seen by a practicing mental health professional directly working with that person. These resources and recommendations should be accessed in the spirit with which they have compiled- as an offering of hope and information for the healing journey. This is not medical advice, and a licensed mental health clinician who provides clinical therapeutic services is best-suited to diagnose and provide treatment for NPD and other mental disorders. These resources may be a helpful addition for the work a person undertakes with their own provider.
