From Haiku, to little ditties, we have poetry to suit all tastes
This book consists of a set of contemporary poems followed by haiku, a Japanese form of poetry. They will take you on a journey to the heights of mania and depths of depression and anxiety, displaying Julie's thoughts, feelings, fears, behaviour and insights. There is still some stigma attached to mental illness and this book aims to give a mind opening experience and a grasp of the difficulties that mental illness brings.
