It's OK Not to Be OK

A Guide to Well-Being

by Claire Eastham, Jessica Smith, Tina Rae
A book that aims to increase awareness, encourage dialogue, reduce stigma, and develop understanding of common mental health issues.

It's OK Not to Be OK acknowledges and explores common mental health disorders such as depression, eating disorders, and anxiety. Get the lowdown on these issues and why they happen, and discover ways of looking after mental health in our fast-moving world. This book will help children and young people develop the resilience to cope with whatever life throws at them and grow into well-rounded, healthy adults.

Dr. Tina Rae is a child psychologist, author, and expert in the social, emotional, and mental health of children and young people. She has over 30 years' experience working with children, adults, and families in both clinical and educational contexts within local authorities and specialist educational services. She lives in the UK.

Jessica Smith's work consists of simple shapes and bright colors. She enjoys working conceptually and therefore scale and perspective play a large role within the images that she makes. Jess studied at Falmouth University and now lives in a small town near Oxford.
