Book Recommendation

The Shock of the Fall - Nathan Filer

‘I’ll tell you what happened because it will be a good way to introduce my brother. His name’s Simon. I think you’re going to like him. I really do. But in a couple of pages he’ll be dead. And he was never the same after that.’

Written by a mental health nurse turned researcher, this book follows 19 year-old Matthew as his guilt over the death of his younger brother leads him deeper into his mental illness. Full of intimate insights into the inner workings of mental illness and recovery, this book is worth a read.

Resources from Past Events

I Feel Better When Wellbeing Matters

This event was put on with The Yellow Book, a positive and creative resource for people struggling with mental health. Free copies will be available at future events, or you can view the virtual flipbook.

Refuge performed a selection of their songs live, all in the theme of mental health an recovery, and were even featured on BBC East Midlands Today, advertising their single 'I Feel Better When.' If you missed out, or just want to listen again, you can find all their music on their website.

Claire Evans gave us all some helpful mindfulness advice on how to relax and de-stress in stressful times. You can see her advice on mindfulness in The Yellow Book, or listen to it as 10 minute sessions in the mindful meds audio clips.
