Reviews

  • This is the freshest, clearest, most direct, honest and urgent collection of writings about mental health that I've read. Scarlett Curtis has curated a stunning variety of voices in the service of blowing away the foggy vapours of misery, incomprehension, secrecy and lonely shame that can shroud us. Within the pages there is searing wit, blinding passion, bleeding emotion and a fantastic, heroic, glorious refusal to lie down and take it that more than anything characterises the new energy behind the mental health movement. Anyone within a few degrees of someone with a mental health problem - and that means the whole world - should read this

  • This is the book I needed when I was younger. May this be a leap forward in the much needed conversation around mental health

  • I think everyone has moments where they're embarrassed by what they're feeling and don't want to talk about it. I get it a lot, and feel unable to tell people I feel down because I know the reply will be, 'but why? Everything seems to be going right.' Reading this book made me feel more normal about how I feel sometimes, whether it's for a reason or just because that's how I woke up that day. It's a great book; however you're feeling, it will help

    Observer
  • Pick it up and read one story from your favourite columnist or actress, but I guarantee you'll end up reading the full, illuminating collection, and you'll possibly finish it knowing more about your own personal stance than you imagined
