Waterstones Says

Following from the massive success of Feminists Don’t Wear Pink (and Other Lies), Scarlett Curtis brings together more high profile figures to talk about their experiences of mental health and the stigma surrounding the issue. Outspoken, provocative and impassioned, It’s Not Ok to Feel Blue is a blistering collection that seeks to shed light on a hugely important topic.               


Everyone has a mental health. So we asked:

What does your mental health mean to you?

THE RESULT IS EXTRAORDINARY.

Over 50 people have shared their story. This book is here to tell you:

You are OK.

FUNNY, IMPORTANT AND RELATABLE, THIS IS THE DEFINITIVE BOOK ON MENTAL HEALTH.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This is the freshest, clearest, most direct, honest and urgent collection of writings about mental health that I've read. Scarlett Curtis has curated a stunning variety of voices in the service of blowing away the foggy vapours of misery, incomprehension, secrecy and lonely shame that can shroud us. Within the pages there is searing wit, blinding passion, bleeding emotion and a fantastic, heroic, glorious refusal to lie down and take it that more than anything characterises the new energy behind the mental health movement. Anyone within a few degrees of someone with a mental health problem - and that means the whole world - should read this - Stephen Fry

This is the book I needed when I was younger. May this be a leap forward in the much needed conversation around mental health - Jameela Jamil

I think everyone has moments where they're embarrassed by what they're feeling and don't want to talk about it. I get it a lot, and feel unable to tell people I feel down because I know the reply will be, 'but why? Everything seems to be going right.' Reading this book made me feel more normal about how I feel sometimes, whether it's for a reason or just because that's how I woke up that day. It's a great book; however you're feeling, it will help - Ed Sheeran

Noble, raising awareness, opening a conversation and intersectional - Mary Beard

Brilliant, hysterical, truthful and real. These essays illuminate the path for our future female leaders - Reese Witherspoon (on FEMINISTS DON'T WEAR PINK)

As a feminist who loves pink, I give this brilliant book of essays an enthusiastic "YES"! - Mindy Kaling (on FEMINISTS DON'T WEAR PINK)

Wonderfully candid, often funny and absolutely necessary, a triumphant rallying call to young women - Observer

Pick it up and read one story from your favourite columnist or actress, but I guarantee you'll end up reading the full, illuminating collection, and you'll possibly finish it knowing more about your own personal stance than you imagined - Glamour

This collection of essays curated by writer Scarlett Curtis is a call-to-arm that allows us to unpick what it means to be a feminist in a safe space - Stylist

We advise placing a copy in the hands of every girl (and guy) you know - Red Magazine
