Psychiatric Tales: Expanded Edition - Darryl Cunningham


Out now!

Psychiatric Tales returns in softcover with all-new additional content.

This book delves inside the mysteries of mental disorders – presenting explanations and recollections using the cartoonist’s own experiences as both a psychiatric and care nurse and as someone who himself has suffered from depression.

Being able to see the issue from both sides allows Darryl to present matters in a forthright and instantly accessible way which will allow many to understand the trials of both sufferers and those connected to them – perhaps for the first time. Topics covered include Bi-polar disorder, self harming, suicide, depression and the author also shows how for some famous people mental disorders were part of what may have made them great. Frank, hard hitting and moving.

"This is a brilliant, hugely uplifting and thought provoking collection of stories and I heartily endorse it."
John Freeman, Down the Tubes
