Product Description
 
Last year, Scarlett Curtis and 52 inspirational women wrote an extraordinary anthology on what feminism means to them. The book went on to be a cultural phenomenon and turned the world Pink.

This year, it's Blue.

We are living in the middle of a mental health epidemic and we have a choice- we can be floored by it - or we can start to make a difference.

Here are the extraordinary people making that difference. Other People Don't Feel Blue (and other lies) is a collection of words from those who have suffered through the worst, and know what it's like to fight to feel better.

This isn't just a book. It's a shout, a scream that cuts above the noise and lets everyone know they are not alone. Funny, sad, clever, relatable it will be a shining example of the power of words to make us all feel better.Last year, Scarlett Curtis and 52 inspirational women wrote an extraordinary anthology on what feminism means to them.
