Book Description:

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 understand how he came to be placed in care, and how 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.

This book was written from the heart and is a moving, honest and uplifting account of someone who has struggled with the scars of a very difficult childhood and adolescence and has come out of the other side with the help of those around him who have loved and continue to love and support him, as well as through faith in the healing power of God. The latter part of the book offers very practical suggestions for those who suffer from the black hole of depression and offers new hope and a way forward, harnessing the potential benefits of productive counselling which is tailored to the needs of the individual. At a time when mental health issues are finally being brought out into an open forum and prejudice towards those who struggle to maintain a healthy mind has been rightly challenged, this book achieves its aim of offering hope for the future, whilst acknowledging that ones past cannot be changed but can be viewed differently.
