Publisher's Summary

In this World Mental Health Day Audible Sessions Special, producer and presenter Holly Newson meets 10 individuals who talk frankly about their mental health. 

In these conversations, guests share stories about their anxiety, depression, paranoid schizophrenia, eating disorders and other mental health problems. The theme for World Mental Health Day in 2019 is suicide prevention, and some of the contributors talk of their own experiences with suicidal thoughts. The guests also share examples of the things they do to help them manage their mental health and consider how we might progress conversations about mental health as we strive to counter the stigma that often surrounds the topic.

It was just ok...

I liked the fact that it presented others who are struggling with Mental illness but, the back and forth between the experiences of the characters(people) I feel didn't allow fluidity in the each of their stories. I would have preferred to hear each of their life experiences with mental illness separate and not all intertwined. Just my opinion...

AMAZING

Thank you for informing me that I'm not alone in this depression maze. Both books were very eye opening. I've learnt more about my mental illness just by hearing others stories. Thank you for lifting a huge load from my mind, body, spirit, and my soul.

Refreshing

I truly wish that when I started suffering 30 years ago, we could have been as open and honest as these people. I love the fact that people can talk openly without feeling ashamed. Well done.

Excellent support and advice

Audio was good since it covered a range of different people who had experienced poor mental health in various ways for different reasons. It was helpful in that it offered hope that you can get better, is something we all experience as human beings and also gave some useful pointers to aid recovery.
