How to Be "Normal" in Your Twenties with Anxiety and Depression

Your twenties can be isolating, infuriating, and painful. How do you stay healthy and realistic when you're also dealing with depression, mania, or anxiety? A Beginner's Guide to Losing Your Mind explores the unique challenges, including:

* How to deal with pressure at school, college, and beyond

* Tips for dating when you are mentally ill (and what to expect when you're on the other side)

* Handling self-harm and suicidal thoughts

* Advice for your family and friends

* Learning how to navigate the Internet and online community

* Advice on diagnosis, treatment, and maintaining your mental health

A darkly funny, deeply compassionate, and extremely practical book, A Beginner's Guide to Losing Your Mind is simultaneously the author's personal account of what it's like to live with mental illness, a guide to dealing with and understanding it, and a companion to make the journey feel a little less lonely.
