Format: Paperback
Dandelions and Bad Hair Days is an anthology that explores the complex and sensitive issues relating to mental health. Compiled by individuals who struggle with depression, OCD and other mental health issues in their everyday life and by those who care for them, this is a unique compilation of candid and powerful personal testimonies.

The collection comprises prose, poetry, interviews, memories and art all edited by writer Suzie Grogan whose blog on mental health was the first platform for many of these voices. The honesty and bravery of the contributors is inspiring and thought-provoking. As well as raising funds for SANE, OCD Action and other mental health charities, Dandelions and Bad Hair Days lifts the lid on this hidden and often taboo subject and invites us all to join the writers in their daily struggles and the support they share with others to help face the challenges of these debilitating and unpredictable conditions. A must-read for everyone.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Jackie on 11 Feb 2013
Format: Paperback
I was drawn to this book by its wonderful title, the eye catching front page and because I am always interested in reading new authors. I was engaged from the start, reading Suzie Grogan's moving opening piece. I found beautiful imagery and heartfelt, personal, life writing. Difficult experiences are discussed, but the lasting impression is of strength and positivity. There is much of interest here for readers who may have shared similar experiences and the chance for those who haven't to gain a profoundly deeper understanding.

Format: Paperback
This edited anthology of poetry and prose, written by those who cope with anxiety and depression and those who care for them, is of interest to everyone, as one in four of us will experience mental ill health at some point. The pieces are interesting, inspiring, and enlightening, and all proceeds go to SANE and other mental health charities. Recommended.
