Mental illness is like a cancer of the mind,

An Imperceptible indiscriminatory presence to humankind

Those touched by it, will know it’s a debilitating living nightmare

However even in our deepest darkest moments of despair

We may not always see hope, but it doesn’t mean it’s not there

The purpose of this book is to give you, the reader, an insight into mental illness

 through both a sufferer’s and their carers eyes

To undo everything surrounding mental illness which has been strongly stigmatised

But most of all to shine a light on recovery and the peace you can still find

The rebuilding of love and relationships which were once left behind

Please remember that there is always a way out, for all of you

This book will have fulfilled its purpose when you eventually do
