Struggling To Breathe The Diary Of A Psychiatric In-Patient.

$17.00

After reaching high academic success, Niamh Brownlee became a primary school teacher, first in Kent then back home in Belfast. But all was not well. Gradually, Niamh became more and more depressed until reaching the point where she just wanted to die.

At the age of 24, she was admitted to hospital. Although at rock bottom mentally. She had the presence of mind to keep a diary of the 31 days she spent in two psychiatric hospitals in Northern Ireland. This helped her survive ans begin the tentative process of recovery.

Five years later. Niamh has decided to share her diary of those days in the hope that others will feel less alone and come to believe that recovery is possible, and help is out there.

Her diary is also instructive for those who provide mental health services. It gives a rare insight into psychiatric in-patient experience and is a plea to improve the quality of care.

Niamh's diary is a raw account of feeling utterly worthless, but ultimately it is a diary of discovery and hope.

Niamh's brave account of her depression and time in hospital will be an inspiration to others. It is a painful story, but it is also an important one. Niamh's story brings hope and her testimony demonstrates how, with good support and appropriate mental health services, recovery is possible.
