by Stephanie Merritt
Stephanie Merritt has a career as a novelist and journalist, a beautiful son and a supportive family. Why then did she want to kill herself at the age of 29? Why could no one, neither the system of GPs and health professionals, nor her closest family and friends help her?
Stephanie’s honest memoir explores areas of experience commonly associated with depression such as love, solitude and self-medication through the prism of her own experience.
