Review

In this upfront and accessible book, Juno Dawson tackles all things mental health. Packed with practical advice, guidance from clinical psychologist Dr Olivia Hewitt and some humorous reassurance, Mind your Head supports teenagers to understand a range of conditions from anxiety to personality disorders, as well as being straight-talking about body image, relationships, drugs and alcohol misuse.

With one in four people diagnosed with a mental health condition each year, most teenagers will either experience a mental health condition or know someone who has done. Juno Dawson encourages young people to be honest, open and informed about mental health and wellbeing. 

Including testimonials from young people and suggested coping mechanisms, Mind Your Head will empower young people to talk confidently about mental health.
