A Beginner's Guide to Losing Your Mind

by Emily Reynolds
£9.99   paperback  Hodder & Stoughton (2018)

A Beginner A funny and moving memoir from a girl with bipolar, including down-to-earth, practical advice for young people and those who love them.
 
Emily Reynolds is mad. After years of trying - and failing - to cope with her symptoms, she was finally diagnosed as bipolar in her early twenties. Since then Emily has been on a mission to find the best way to live with her illness, and now she wants to share that knowledge with you. Living with mental illness is isolating, infuriating and painful - but also very boring and, sometimes, kind of gross. A Beginner's Guide to Losing Your Mind is a companion to make the journey feel a little less lonely.
 
A Beginner's Guide to Losing Your Mind gives you tips on:
 
How to deal with exam pressure at school and university
How to date when you are mentally ill (and what to expect when you're on the other side)
Navigating the internet and the online mental health community
Handling self-harm and suicidal thoughts
Diagnosis, treatment and maintaining your mental health
 
A blackly funny, deeply compassionate and extremely practical book, A Beginner's Guide to Losing Your Mind is a candid exploration of mental illness that is both a personal account of what it's like to live with mental illness and a guide to dealing with and understanding it.
