Description

Mind Like Mine is a stigma-busting collection of biographies of some of the great people from history who have lived with mental health conditions.

Did you know Charles Darwin experienced anxiety and Florence Nightingale lived with PTSD? From Michelangelo to Deepika Padukone , Ada Lovelace to Freddie Flintoff , a great many successful people with brilliant minds and talents have lived or are living with mental health disorders.

The aim of this book is to help remove some of the stigma around mental health , discuss different mental health conditions, what they mean and how they are treated; and ultimately to show that mental health disorders do not have to hold anyone back from achieving their dreams.

The figures featured are from a range of diverse backgrounds and disciplines across science, literature, art, music, sport, politics and popular culture. Additional feature pages will explain and explore key mental health conditions including depression , bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, anxiety and eating disorders.
