OPEN: Why asking for help can save your life
'OPEN is an intimate, honest and powerful read. So personal you want to jump into the pages.'- Giovanna Fletcher, bestselling author of Happy Mum, Happy Baby
'A beautiful read.'- Zoe Ball, BBC Radio 2
"I lived with it in silence. I tried to conquer it alone. And then I asked for help. It took me hitting hard, sharp rock bottom for me to truly recognize how ill I was."
In OPEN, Frankie Bridge opens up about her ongoing journey from breakdown to breakthroughs and through self-loathing, hospitalization and self-acceptance. Part narrative exploration, part guide, this book will help you to understand the importance of talking and helping each other.
It will also feature guidance and advice from the psychologist and psychiatrist who pulled her back from the brink along with their notes on her and conversations with her. It's a very simple four-letter word, but one of the hardest words to put into practice, this book will help people to understand the importance of talking out and helping each other.
'Every bit is gold standard.' - Cosmopolitan
'Open is the sort of memoir that will be of huge help to many people, not just those suffering but to those around them.' - Femail, the Daily Mail
