This book will definitely make you laugh and might just make you cry, but it could also help save a life.
Cheer the F**K Up: How to Save Your Best Friend is a bold, brilliant and very personal account of a young comedian's experiences with mental health. Jack Rooke is on a mission to help us better understand the reasons why so many young men are acting in such desperate ways and to encourage more of us to understand the early signs of depression in our friends and family. Part memoir, part polemic, Cheer the F**K Up is a completely fresh and timely take on a huge issue, and one that is very close to Jack's heart – in 2015, while Jack was working an ambassador for a male mental health charity; he lost his best friend, Olly, to suicide.
This is a journey through Jack’s life and experiences with Olly, coupled with frank and powerful advice on how to talk to your friends about their state of mind. Hilarious, heart-breaking, and empowering in turns, Cheer The F**K Up aims to shed a little light into the darkness, and help us start meaningful conversations about our mental health.
