Subtitle 21 stories of mental health disorders
Description Description A Mind Like Mine is a stigma-busting collection of biographies of some of the great people from history who have suffered from mental illnesses.
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 a mental illness.
The biographies in this book show that you can't always tell what a person is going through, and that mental health conditions can and do afflict all kids of people from all walks of life. The aim of this book is to help remove some of the stigma around mental health, discuss different mental illnesses, what they mean and how they are treated; and ultimately to show that mental illness does not have to hold anyone back from achieving their dreams.
The figures featured are 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 bulimia.
