TW// mentions of suicide in the introduction

Dear reader,

When it comes to mental health, I have only been honest around here. If you have been reading me for a while you may then know that I tried to commit suicide several times in my life.

Dear reader,

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

If you know me then you know that mental health is something very close to my heart and that I try to bring awareness towards it every day. I talk a lot about it on my Instagram and always try to be honest in order to help others realising that they aren’t alone. Obviously I had to write a few posts dedicated to it this month.

Today I wanted to present to you all my five favourite books which deal with mental health.
