A Gift of Stories

The life stories in this book are by people who, at some point in their lives, have been diagnosed with a mental illness which they have learned to deal with. They have found the courage to speak publicly about their experience in a world which is still prejudiced against people with mental illness. The book is a source of inspiration for anyone with mental illness and their family and friends, a unique teaching tool for people working in the mental health area, and a way of opening doors on mental illness and letting in some light, for us all.
