    How Not to Lose It was bought for me by a collegue for Secret Santa. Since we work closely with young people in schools, many of whom battle against mental health struggles, he thought it'd be a good resource for me to have. The book covers lots of topics related to mental health and well-being such as: anxiety, stress, depression, friendships (how to remove toxic friends from your life and how to make new friends), peer pressure, puberty, sexuality, sexual health, identity, social media, online How Not to Lose It was bought for me by a collegue for Secret Santa. Since we work closely with young people in schools, many of whom battle against mental health struggles, he thought it'd be a good resource for me to have. The book covers lots of topics related to mental health and well-being such as: anxiety, stress, depression, friendships (how to remove toxic friends from your life and how to make new friends), peer pressure, puberty, sexuality, sexual health, identity, social media, online safety, family, loss, grief, loving yourself and more. It's presented in a succinct manner which is accessible for young people and reads in a way that they will be able to understand. It includes the voices of children with articles scattered throughout where children ask Williamson for advice on something they're finding difficult. The illustrations by Sophie Beer are wonderful. They're visually pleasing and reinforce the ideas and themes Williamson discusses. Since the book is aimed at a younger audience, none of the topics included in the book are discussed in much depth. As an adult, it was hard for me to see past this. I couldn't help but frown at the fact that in the section about sexuality there are only three sexual identities that are mentioned: straight, gay and bisexual. For young people who are exploring their identity and may be experiencing confusion, this only enforces the notion that these are the only choices when in fact sexuality is much broader than this. It also felt that the book was geared towards a particular type of young person from a particular background. I can only imagine that a child in care or from a cultural background that isn't white British, for example, would find it hard to relate to a lot of the messages and themes presented in the book. Nonetheless, these few blunders aside, this book is informative and educational, and would be a good resource to introduce young people to the basic concepts around mental health and well-being. Although, I'd hope that teenagers will already know a lot of the information the book contains, because if they don't that means that the education system has is well and truly failing them.

The purpose of this book is to inform and reassure young people about what goes on inside their heads by openly discussing how the mind can react to different situations. This is the book I wish I’d had as a teenager. I didn’t learn about anxiety and panic attacks until I was at university and even then, it was through social media. No one in school taught me that my anxiety was more than just being painfully shy. I know I’d have been grateful for a book like this to have been in my library. How Not to Lose It covers a range of mental health problems, giving advice on how to cope with situations that young people might find themselves in. From stress and grief, to navigating the online world and learning to accept yourself, Anna Williamson leaves no stone unturned. What I particularly loved was the Myth Busting and Ask Anna sections. We all have illogical fears at times, and it can be difficult to find people to ask about them. It’s great that Anna uses these parts of the book to show teens that they’re not alone in their way of thinking. There are even sections for writing things down, and letter templates for when things need to be said but speaking might be too scary. There’s nothing condescending and no lectures on what’s right and wrong, just pure understanding. The section that discusses being online is super important. A lot has changed since I was in school just ten years ago. Whatever advice I might have needed then is so different to what teens today need to know. The world of social media can be a wonderful community, but it also has may dangerous and upsetting sides to it. I can’t imagine how difficult it is for teens to navigate their way through that whilst being in school. We definitely need more books like this one to give an updated look in to how modern society can impact mental health. Reasons to Love - It’s simple and straight to the point whilst also being reassuring. - The book normalises things that young people might worry about. - There are wonderful illustrations throughout, making the discussions seem less intimidating. - It talks about various treatment options from doctors to medication. - There are several websites at the back of the book to find further help. Overall Thoughts Books like this being easily available to young people are so important. We need to help teens feel like they have places to turn. Mental health can make us so isolated but there is always help available and there are places to find comfort, even if it’s within the pages of a book.

    I dipped into How Not to Lose It the first time on a day that I was incredibly stressed. The tag on the book promises “Mental Health Sorted” after all.I appreciate the contents Anna Williamson has included. The narrative is directed at a young readership but there is no condescension to the audience. Instead the author acknowledges how everyone has their own battles. How Not to Lose It includes thing like; tips on what to look for in identifying stress, myth busters, advice.
