Mind your head

Dawson, Juno (Young adult fiction writer), author; Hewitt, Olivia, author; Correll, Gemma, illustrator

We all have a mind, so we all need to take care of our mental health as much as we need to take care of our physical health. And the first step is being able to talk about our mental health. James Dawson leads the way with this frank, factual and funny book, with added information and support from clinical psychologist Dr Olivia Hewitt. Covering topics from anxiety and depression to addiction, self-harm and personality disorders, James and Olivia talk clearly and supportively about a range of issues facing young people's mental health - whether fleeting or long-term - and how to manage them, with real-life stories from young people around the world

Reviews

Really and truly: Mind Your Head is a fabulous contribution to the long road to getting mental health parity with physical health. It's truthful and honest. It's clear and accessible. It has both personal and professional experience hard-wired into it. And it's not afraid to make you laugh even when it's talking about very serious things. Highly recommended.
thebookbag.co.uk||Aimed at young adults, the book is accessible and supportive with humorous illustrations by Gemma Correll (...) The message is 'Let's talk about mental health' and the personal stories of dozens of teenagers will hopefully make it easier for others to do so too
The Guardian||I think this book should lurk around a lot of homes and school libraries. It's important, empathetic, well-researched and, most of all, kind. And the world needs to be kinder to people who are minding their heads. Highly recommend.
INIS Magazine||Juno Dawson's book is a brilliantly accessible, frank and funny look at issues such as depression, self-harm, and anxiety

Have you noticed how it's easier to talk about some medical problems than others?

Perhaps the hardest of all to talk about are mental illness - but we've all got a mind, so we've all got mental health. Can any of us say we haven't been stressed, sad, anxous, angry, tired and emotional?

In this clear and supportive guide to young people's mental health, Juno Dawson, author of This Book is Gay, and clincal pyschologist Dr Olviia Hewitt discuss a range of isses - whether fleeting or long-term - and how to manage them.

With witty illsutrations from Gemma Correll, Juno and Dr Olivia cover topics from anxiety and depression to addiction, self-harm and personality disorders, with dozens of life stories from people just like you, who are living with mental illness.
