"Be motivated to heal, be inspired to write"

"There's still so much silence and underlying stigma that surrounds suicide and self-harm. Thank you for being so brave, where others, I think, are too afraid to even voice the words self-harm and suicide"

It is undeniable that putting thoughts, feelings and emotions into words, on paper, either with poetry or in a short story format, can be both therapeutic and an incredibly effective method of self-help and healing.

 

In this brave and uncompromising collection, 50 writers and poets in countries around the world including: Australia, Bangladesh, Bahrain, Benin, Brazil, England, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Malawi, Malta, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Scotland, South Africa, Switzerland and the USA, creatively explore the themes of suicide and self-harm, either from their own personal perspectives and experiences, or from the experiences of friends, family and people close by. An anthology on these subjects is undoubtedly thought-provoking and emotional, but also positive and uplifting too as, for many, putting their thoughts and feelings into words has set many on the road to creativity, healing and ultimately recovery.

 

All profits from the sale of this book will go towards the development of Counselling Through Creativity, a not-for-profit organisation helping and supporting others through the creative use of words as a effective, therapeutic tool for self-help and healing.
