An internationally respected campaigner, Pooky Knightsmith has worked tirelessly to promote good child and adolescent mental health. Her knowledge, ideas and advice come not just from years of research and study, but from hard earned experience with PTSD, anorexia, self-harm and depression.

Part mental health guide, part memoir this book is full of life lessons learned from everyday experiences, small victories, and traumatic events. Pooky shares tips on how to avoid burn-out, how a small act of self-care can make a big difference, steps you can take to live with anxiety and how to nurture key friendships and relationships amongst many, many others. Each lesson ends with space for the reader to reflect, and exercises to help take the first steps to incorporating these lessons into on their own lives.

Unflinching and utterly authentic, Pooky shares the things she got wrong so that you don't have to.
