A is for Anxiety. Z is for zero f**ks.
In A Beginner’s Guide to Being Mental, former government mental health adviser Natasha Devon, MBE draws on decades of personal experience to lift the lid on mental health issues that have for too long been swept under the carpet of national consciousness. 8.2 million people in the UK will experience anxiety this year, 1 in 3 people during their lifetime, yet we all have a brain and so we all have mental health.
The past few years have seen an explosion in mental health awareness but very few of us have the language we need to let others know how we feel. Natasha Devon is here to help, explaining the difference between sadness and depression and answering important questions like 'Does therapy work?' and 'Am I normal?' A Beginner's Guide to Being Mental covers topics such as body image and gender via social inequality and everything in between, tapping into how we think and behave, debunking and demystifying the stigma surrounding experiences of mental health today.
