Reviews

'[Katie's] story captures the challenges of trying to access the right service at the right time and the stark realities of living with bipolar. This book is a great read for someone recently diagnosed with bipolar as the narrative is so relatable and accessible due to its honesty. It will also be of particular interest to family members or friends trying to better understand and empathise with someone they care about; or anyone who would like more knowledge of bipolar, its impact and how you can start to build a life that is not defined by the diagnosis.'
