A funny and moving memoir from a girl with bipolar, including down-to-earth, practical advice for young people and those who love them.

Emily Reynolds is mad. After years of trying - and failing - to cope with her symptoms, she was finally diagnosed as bipolar in her early twenties. Since then Emily has been on a mission to find the best way to live with her illness, and now she wants to share that knowledge with you. Living with mental illness is isolating, infuriating and painful - but also very boring and, sometimes, kind of gross. A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO LOSING YOUR MIND is a companion to make the journey feel a little less lonely.


-How to deal with exam pressure at school and university

-Advice for your family and friends
-Tips for dating when you are mentally ill (and what to expect when you're on the other side)
-Learning how to navigate the internet and the online mental health community

A blackly funny, deeply compassionate and extremely practical book, A BEGINNER'S GUIDE TO LOSING YOUR MIND is a candid exploration of mental illness that is both a personal account of what it's like to live with mental illness and a guide to dealing with and understanding it.
