The Book Fairies were so pleased to be involved with Michael O’Mara Books in conjunction with Mind UK in order to share this unique book for men.
Book fairies up and down the UK joined in with a very special campaign today, one that marks Mental Health Awareness Week. This Book Could Help is pretty unique, as it is targeting men in order for them to open up about their mental health.
Book Fairies worked hard to find perfect spots to hide these books in plain sight, even finding mental health centres and waiting rooms there.
About the book:
Your body needs maintaining to keep it healthy.
So does your mind. Sounds simple, but tired and outdated ideas that tell men how they ought to be, mean the message gets lost. And the results speak for themselves: suicide is the biggest killer of men under fifty.
There’s no more room for debate – taking care of your head space should be as normal as eating your five-a-day or going to the gym.
Many books make impossible promises about how they will fix all your problems and stresses with some miraculous ten-step programme.
This one doesn’t. What it does do is provide practical help, when times are tough and also when they’re not. And just like with your physical health, it doesn’t always have to take much to make a difference. Developed in partnership with Mind, the mental health charity, This Book Could Help is filled with straightforward expert advice and simple techniques to help you shake off what other people say you ought to be, prioritize yourself, meet challenges and develop new strengths, in areas such as dealing with stress, motivation, work and life goals.
We all deserve to live fully and respect our struggles, so start here and back yourself every day. Because head space is not a luxury, it’s essential.
