Everyone says being a teenager is CRAZY. But do they mean crazy hard, crazy fun… or just plain bonkers?
Roughly three people in every class have some kind of mental health issue, but most of them have no idea what’s going on. They think they’re just weak, or shy, or bad, or ... completely, irreversibly, writing-on-the-walls 'insane'. But they’re not. They have some form of depression, anxiety, eating disorder or other mental health issue and they will come out the other side.
This is a book of advice, from young people who made it through, to their sixteen-year-old selves.
Do you ever feel like the apocalypse is coming, and it wouldn’t be that bad? Like bed is as far as you want to get today? As though your heart is going to beat right out of your chest and your legs have turned to jelly, at the thought of leaving home or talking to another human being? Or maybe you just feel like when you start worrying, you can’t stop.
Whatever form it takes, this book can help you through it.
Trigger warning: Due to it’s nature, the content of this book may be triggering. Contains personal experiences of depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, trichotillomania and other mental health issues, as well as issues such as assault.
