What an eye opener it is. As a parent of someone who suffers a mental health illness life hasnt always been easy for us . Reading something like this years ago would have been most usefull in helping me understand what a struggle an individual day can be. Each person has been very brave in penning their thoughts, feelings and struggles..well done to you all.
'A Day In My Head' is like no book I've ever read. Rather guiltily, I felt some relief reading the stories from people who both bravely and honestly put down on paper how it feels simply to be them. To feel different, to think differently and have little say over how their day, in this case May 16th 2016, was going to go.
Things are better, recently, when it comes to talking about mental health. More and more we see it discussed in the media and across social media platforms, and modern society appears to be okay with that. There is, however, still a great deal of shame associated with expressing our deepest, darkest thoughts and feelings along with a regrettably large amount of ignorance about what it is society and the powers that be can do to help. 'A Day In My Head' presents beautifully, tragically and lovingly how it feels to live a life interrupted by mental health issues, and in many cases how the world perceives it. A simple concept for a book, yet one that is arguably one of the most needed amongst the chaos of life, that often makes it seemingly impossible to realise that we are not alone.
A day in my head is a one-off book offering readers an interesting and unique insight into life with mental illness. This is unlike any other book I have read and kept me gripped from page to page.
