Suggest books for me > Recommend me a book or two about a male protagonist who's suffering from mental illness. I prefer YA books. A tearjerking one would be wonderful. :)

If you're willing to have a female MC, Lisa, Bright and Dark and I Never Promised You a Rose Garden are great.

While it is listed as a book in the "World of Tiers"-series by P J Farmer, it also works as a standalone, imho (although I read the series long ago before this book).
Using the setting of the World of Tiers in a therapy, this reads rather like one of the other books mentioned in this thread (esp. ... Rose Garden).
Male MC, read the blurb and I recommend it. Just checked, it is OOP, you may have to go for a used copy.
An EBook is available, though (checked only for Kindle).
