For those discussions we ought to have but do not. Great insights on mental health and illness, wonderful stories and heartfelt experiences. Thanks NetGalley for the eARC.

Thank you to Netgalley for a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

This is a collection of over 50 stories, poems and art about BAME experiences of mental health. I was shocked to read many of the experiences and statistics and this book has opened my eyes to many things I knew little about. Due to all the different stories and how much there is to think about I found it best to have a break between each one rather than sit and read in one go.
As a minor point it would have been good to have

So so so good! It was amazing getting to read so many different stories and some of the poems will definitely stay with me for a very long time.

Read this book

If you're mad, if you're neurodiverse, if you're BAME, or if you work with any of these identity groups, read this book. It'll plant a seed - either one of empathy or one that will help you feel seen depending on who you are.

Finally we have an introduction to enlightenment

I felt that I could really connect with the artists that created this book as a person of colour who works within the mental health sector . This helped open my mind to the things that are happening but casually brushed under the carpet. Thank you for writing this . If there were more than five stars to rate this book I would give you a higher rating .
