Perfectly Imperfect Stories: Meet 29 inspiring people and discover their mental health stories (Hardback)

This wonderful hard-back book is from London based Magic Cat Publishing and features the mental health stories of 29 inspiring people. From pop stars such as Kylie Minogue and Lady Gaga to Sporting Heroes like Michael Phelps, and even royalty! This vibrant, fun book features a double page spread on each icon and how they overcame a range of mental health issues from anorexia to depression to live an inspiring life.

Children’s mental health is under even more pressure than ever and this wonderful book celebrates that it’s ok not to be ok and that we can share our stories to help each other! It’s a lovely gift for children, tweens and families and a lovely way to make sure mental health isn’t a taboo subject.

With rainbow illustrations, doodles and colour, you will be delving in to each and every page. It’s a lovely coffee table book, would make a great book for a waiting room. playroom or perhaps for your classroom. Inspirational books for children that cover mental health are few and far between. We’ll be taking a copy for show and tell once the schools re-open!

There are some straightforward messages that come from all the cases – that talking helps, that taking time for oneself is vital and that coping skills will be different for different people.  The main message I took from the book is that it is important to be honest about your condition and that it’s OK not to be OK! This last phrase is actually the heading for the list of useful and important organisations – vital in a book of this sort as young people may well browse the title, recognise their own feelings and want to get some help.
