"I lived with it in silence. I tried to conquer it alone. And then I asked for help. It took me hitting hard, sharp rock bottom for me to truly recognize how ill I was."
In Open, Frankie Bridge, ex-The Saturdays, opens up about her ongoing journey from breakdown to breakthroughs and through self-loathing, hospitalization and self-acceptance. Part narrative exploration, part practical guide, this book will help you to understand the importance of talking and helping each other in an imperfect world.
It also features practical guidance and advice from the psychologist and psychiatrist who pulled her back from the brink along with their notes and conversations throughout her mental health journey. By opening up about her battles, Frankie wants to help a generation of people to be more open about their mental health.
It's a very simple four-letter word, but one of the hardest words to put into practice, this book will help people to understand the importance of talking out and helping each other.
