Summary

An internationally respected campaigner, Pooky Knightsmith has worked tirelessly to promote good child and adolescent mental health. Her knowledge, ideas and advice come not just from years of research and study but from hard-earned experience with PTSD, anorexia, self-harm and depression.

Part mental health guide, part memoir, this audiobook contains 48 life lessons learned from everyday victories to life-changing events. Pooky shares tips on how to avoid burnout, how small acts of self-care can make a big difference, steps you can take to live with anxiety and how to nurture key friendships and relationships, amongst many other things. Each lesson ends with space for the listener to reflect, and includes exercises to help take the first steps to incorporating these lessons into their own lives.

Unflinching and utterly authentic, Pooky shares the things she got wrong so that you don't have to.

Easy to listen packed with great advice

I am so happy that it was Pookys voice reading the book!
I really liked the way each piece of advice talked about the lesson and the teacher and gave practical ways to incorporate myself.
Really great! Thank you!
