I have seen a few patients reading this book who have told me how much they love it. I recommend it. 16-year-old Aza has OCD and anxiety and is attempting to search for a missing billionaire.
Tackling the themes of anxiety, grief and loss, we follow Rumi, as she navigates the death of her younger sister. This book is honest and full of hope.
Leigh is 16 when her mother kills herself. This book moves through the depths of grief as Leigh tries to piece together her history in order to find herself again.
This book tackles some difficult themes but is funny, warming and honest. We follow Mim on her physical and psychological journey to discovery.
As someone who has ADHD, I can struggle to focus or move my mind away from one single thought. I love graphic novels for this very reason. They transport me immediately. Charming and fun, Charlie and Nick will have your hearts.
'Speak up for yourself—we want to know what you have to say.' Another graphic novel, Laurie Halse Anderson uses this fiercely honest and important story to bring to light the difficulties of sexual assault and its fallout.
Evie has OCD and anxiety, which often come hand in hand. I love this book because it’s about someone who attempts to suppress their 'illness' and tries to appear 'normal'. Simply put, understanding that this is not the route to happiness is wonderful to read. Also, a great feminist story that everyone should read.
I had the pleasure of meeting Danielle, a fellow Manc, in QueerLit bookshop in Manchester. Not only a great person, but this book compassionately looks at the themes of suicide and the way the modern world affects our mental health. It's really powerful.
This is so original—I loved it. This graphic novel is about the importance of finding your tribe.
I have always loved Juno Dawson. I will forever be a supporter of not only her trans activism, but her books too. Clean is the first instalment in her London trilogy. As someone who has been sober for a while now due my own struggles with addiction, I found this book hit home in its exploration of getting clean and dealing with the wreckage of what is left behind. Love it.
Scattered Minds helped me understand my ADHD, The Myth Of Normal helped me learn that we are all relatively similar despite our differences and In The Realm of Hungry Ghosts helped me when I was getting sober. The early days were hard and this book allowed me to make sense of it.
This book should be read by everyone. The stigma attached to psychosis (something wider society knows little about and looks at through a very narrow lens), is shattered by this book. Read it.
Really important stuff in this book about the current hatred aimed at and within the LGBTQI+ community. It lays out the problems of a society driven by heteronormativity. Meg has a clear agenda and keenly expresses that we must start by all being kinder to one another and understanding different perspectives. Solidarity.
We are in an epidemic. An epidemic of unhappiness.…
