Summary

In this book, we follow Mark’s journey with anxiety, panic attacks and depression, and we learn about the enduring impact his childhood had on his mental health.
His diary entries bring to life the thoughts and feelings of Mark, as a teenager, struggling to understood how he came to be placed in care, and struggling to deal with his adolescent feelings of loss and love.
On the verge of breakdown, Mark tried to take his own life and he was sectioned under the mental health act. We follow his journey from local authority care to the wards of a crumbling Victorian psychiatric asylum, and beyond into life on the streets …
This is a heartfelt, true story, of how a troubled young man managed to turn his life around. From being imprisoned in the care system and mislabelled as a violent boy with no hope, we hear how Mark became a successful, happily married family man, and a prominent figure in his local community.
