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, many successful people with brilliant minds and talents have lived or are living with mental health disorders. Many of them experienced hardship for it -- but many of them also experienced joy and fulfillment! In this meaningful anthology, A Mind Like Mine explores it all.
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 impact 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 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.
In this beautifully illustrated biography anthology, discover the hidden mental health stories of 21 famous figures! Every child, regardless of whether they are experiencing their own mental health challenges, will find entertainment and inspiration in these authentic true stories.
