Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

We are not okay....

I've been fortunate enough to meet many remarkable people over the last decade of making documentaries - sometimes in incredibly hostile environments, where they've been really up against it - and I've seen the devastating effect that poverty, trauma, violence, abuse, stigma, stress, prejudice and discrimination can have on people's mental health. It has always been the common thread.

Every week, one in 10 young people in the UK experiences symptoms of a common mental health problem, such as anxiety or depression, and one in five have considered taking their own life at some point. In this audiobook, Stacey Dooley opens up the conversation about mental health in young people, to challenge the stigma and stereotypes around it.

Working in collaboration with mental health experts and charities, Stacey talks to young people across the UK directly affected by mental health issues and helps tell their stories responsibly, in order to shine a light on life on the mental health frontline and give a voice to young people throughout the UK who are living with mental health conditions across the spectrum.

As well as hearing about their experiences directly, Stacey speaks to medical experts, counsellors, campaigners and health practitioners who can give detailed insights into the conditions profiled and explore the environmental factors that play a part - including poverty, addiction, identity, pressures of social media and the impact of COVID-19.

incredible book!

I listen to this at work while i clean, i’ve learnt so much. The way Stacey wrote it and went into detail on every story and different part of mental health is amazing. I struggle with my own mental health and it was great to hear a different perspective of it. I will definitely be listening to it again.
