Overview

A writer uses a semicolon when they could have finished a sentence with a full stop; but decided to keep going.

In Suicide Awareness and Mental Health the “;” symbol represents

“I’m not done” or “My Story Isn’t Over”. This symbol saved my life. This symbol changed my life and this symbol became my life.

A look at some serious mental and physical conditions from a quirky personal perspective. This is like a Mental Health Handbook for non-clinicians. It contains chapters dealing with the following topics and more:

• Anxiety

• Mania

• Depression

• OCD

• BiPolar

• PTSD

• Bullies

• Suicide

This book can be read as a stand-alone book or as a continuation after:

‘The Bi-Polar Express’ and ‘Panic Stations along The Bi-Polar Express’.
