Head Case: Treat Yourself to Better Mental Health

The reality of living with depression, anorexia, anxiety, bipolar disorder and addiction is revealed through the eyes of young people who have first-hand experience of these illnesses.Through their own, very personal stories, they reveal how they have dealt with mental illness, in some cases continue to live with it, and how they have managed to turn things around and regain control of their lives. The stories range from accounts of their most desperate moments to the optimism of finding a way out of the darkness with the help of specialist support.
