Really and truly: Mind Your Head is a fabulous contribution to the long road to getting mental health parity with physical health. It's truthful and honest. It's clear and accessible. It has both personal and professional experience hard-wired into it. And it's not afraid to make you laugh even when it's talking about very serious things. Highly recommended. thebookbag.co.uk Aimed at young adults, the book is accessible and supportive with humorous illustrations by Gemma Correll (...)

There's a real need for more accessible, age appropriate non-fiction specifically for young adults. After all, they're going through a lot of the same issues as their not-so-young adult counterparts and the self-help section in bookshops seems to be growing at a ridiculously fast rate.

In Mind Your Head, Juno Dawson talks frankly about mental health issues - including sharing her own experiences - and the result is an entertaining and informative guide to depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bullying, peer pressure and many more relevant-to-teen topics. It's almost like chatting with a straight-talking, no nonsense friend, as Juno brings a touch of humour to some sensitive subjects. There were times where, as someone who suffers with anxiety and body confidence issues, I personally would have preferred a gentler approach, but I'm aware hyper-sensitivity is part of my own mental health make up. And of course, many people respond well to a frank message as opposed to the softy-softly pussyfooting I favour.

The illustrations from Gemma Correll add to the non-threatening package of Mind Your Head and I can imagine it'll appeal to the target audience - and anything that encourages taking responsibility for your own wellbeing (and this goes for all age groups) can only be a good thing.

I really hope this flies off the shelves - honestly, every school library should have a copy of this book.
