Better Life: How Our Darkest Moments Can Be Our Greatest Gift
A frank and inspiring guide to living a happy, fulfilling life with the challenge of a mental health issue.
A Better Life is a rich blend of Craig Hamilton's own amazing story of how as a busy broadcaster, dad, husband and mental health campaigner, he lives with bipolar. Craig also shares the experiences of others in the public eye who are dealing with mental illness, including powerful and practical material from Andrew Johns ( bipolar disorder), Garry McDonald ( anxiety and depression), Jessica Rowe ( postnatal depression) and Wally Lewis (depression). Craig's authentic, practical and reassuring advice is underpinned by a wicked sense of humour that lifts the darker aspects of his story and makes for a truly compelling read.
