Product Description

Dr Lucy Maddox is a clinical psychologist and writer. Lucy has worked with young people and their families and carers in a range of settings, including the NHS and third sector. She is the author of Blueprint, a popular science book about child development, and writes articles for a range of publications.

Exploring and explaining the range of mental health, from wellbeing through to mental health problems, in a non-stigmatising, accessible and accurate way.

Mental health gets talked about a lot, but what is it? And where does it come from?

This book explains what mental health is, considering how it relates to lots of different experiences, from how we manage really big feelings, to how we get on with each other, how we make choices and how we handle stressful situations. The book thoughtfully examines the things that can help us look after our mental health and the things that might make it feel worse. It has suggestions for the support on offer if we feel we're struggling.

It includes specially-written contributions from Chamique Holdsclaw, US gold medallist basketballer, academics Dr Suzi Gage and Professor Marianne Van Den Bree, poet Fisky, artists Christine Rai and Liz Atkin, mental health advocate Chineye Njoku and Dr Alan Cooklin, psychiatrist and founder of the charity Our Time which helps children whose parents experience mental health problems.

Aimed at young people aged 10 and upwards.

Part of the groundbreaking and important 'And Other Big Questions' series, which offers balanced and considered views on the big issues we face in the world we live in today.

Other titles in the series include:
What is Gender? How does it define us?
What is Feminism? Why do we need it?
What is Consent? Why is it important?
What is Masculinity? Why does it matter?
