Book

On Mental Illness: What Can Calm, Reassure and Console

Regular price £15.00

The new title by The School of Life asks the question - if we accept that our organs may fail us during our life, why do we seem to make an exception when it comes to our minds?

 

This handsome hardback guide is here to help us cope with a variety of forms of mental pain and unwellness. It considers why we might become ill, how we can explain that illness, how we should care for ourselves and how we might adjust the view of ourselves and our future.

 

This is an encouraging, helpful and humane book, whose central ideas are based on not suffering alone, reducing shame and accepting our troubles. With chapters including themes of medication, love, community and self-compassion - this book is an essential tool to help us on the road to recovery
