Everything Here Is Beautiful by Mira T. Lee, that came out last year, is a novel that essentially deals with mental illness.

An American Marriage by Tayari Jones was selected for the Oprah's Book Club and it was longlisted for the 2018 National Book Award For Fiction. It definitely is a solid, thought-provoking and engrossing book.
You Know You Want This is definitely one the best short story collections I have ever read. I am so happy Jonathan Cape reached out to me to introduce me to the amazing work of Kristen Roupenian!
