Hello everyone,

I am currently working on writing a book. The book will detail my entire journey through mental health, being sectioned and how I have overcome that. I would like your opinions if you would read a book based on someone else's story (My story and background). I just want to get my story out there, the mistreatment I have experienced and on the other hand, the high level of support I have had since leaving hospital in December 2019. I want to put my story out so that people can relate to me and not feel like they’re completely alone in the dark world that is Mental Health. I want to help people with coming to terms with being sectioned and how they can take control of their life back. I also want to lift the negative culture and stigma around mental health.

If you guys could be extremely helpful and give me your thoughts on this I would be very eternally grateful!!

Many thanks and I hope you're all well and I am here if anyone ever needs help understanding or just someone to rant to!
Rebecca :D

Dear Rebecca,
yes, I would be very interested in reading your book.
I do believe that Mind.org has a publishing department - perhaps when your are ready, you could approach them for help with editing and publishing.
with best regards,
B

There are many people who would like to read such a book. Make it positive and don't present yourself as a victim and it should do well. Trigger Press publish this type of book.
