Mind Your Head, by Juno Dawson

We all have a mind, so we all need to take care of our mental health as much as we need to take care of our physical health. And the first step is being able to talk about our mental health. James Dawson leads the way with this frank, factual and funny book, with added information and support from clinical psychologist Dr Olivia Hewitt.

Covering topics from anxiety and depression to addiction, self-harm and personality disorders, James and Olivia talk clearly and supportively about a range of issues facing young people's mental health - whether fleeting or long-term - and how to manage them, with real-life stories from young people around the world.

Calyx Allerton-Bullard, Reading Well Project Assistant says:

An understanding, practical guide to mental health for young people, Mind Your Head is a great book that I would recommend for the shelves of any secondary school. With advice from Dr. Olivia Hewitt, and written in Juno Dawson’s fun, positive voice it is an excellent starting read into the world of mental health issues and cognitive behavioural therapy.
