From the critically acclaimed author of THIS BOOK IS GAY, James Dawson, now writing as 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. Juno 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, Juno 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 and witty illustrations from Gemma Correll.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Really and truly: Mind Your Head is a fabulous contribution to the long road to getting mental health parity with physical health. It's truthful and honest. It's clear and accessible. It has both personal and professional experience hard-wired into it. And it's not afraid to make you laugh even when it's talking about very serious things. Highly recommended. * thebookbag.co.uk *
Aimed at young adults, the book is accessible and supportive with humorous illustrations by Gemma Correll (...) The message is 'Let's talk about mental health' and the personal stories of dozens of teenagers will hopefully make it easier for others to do so too -- Victoria Rossiter * The Guardian *
I think this book should lurk around a lot of homes and school libraries. It's important, empathetic, well-researched and, most of all, kind. And the world needs to be kinder to people who are minding their heads. Highly recommend. -- Deirdre Sullivan * INIS Magazine *
Juno Dawson's book is a brilliantly accessible, frank and funny look at issues such as depression, self-harm, and anxiety * Diva Magazine *
Juno Dawson's frank and funny guide to dealing with mental health issues * Hello! Magazine *
Dawson and Hewitt have written a warm, frank and supportive guide for young people offering welcome insights and practical tips on how to manage their thoughts and how to seek help (...) this book is a welcome and useful addition to the shelf-help bookshelf for young people * Inis Reading Guide *
Here's a comforting, medically sound guide to understanding mental health as a teenager. With excellent illustrations by artist (and mental health activist) Gemma Correll, thoughtful and funny storytelling from Juno Dawson, and top advice from Dr Olivia Hewitt, it's an ideal way to start looking after your mind. * Buzzfeed *
