What Does it mean to feel truly alive? Aged 24, Matt Haig's world caved in. He could see no way to go on living.
This is the true story of how he came through crisis, triumphed over an illness that almost destroyed him and learned to live again.
A moving, funny and joyous exploration of how to live better, love better and feel more alive, Reasons to Stay Alive is more than a memoir. It is a book about making the most of your time on earth.
"I wrote this book because the oldest cliches remain the truest. Time heals. The bottom of the valley never provides the clearest view. The tunnel does have light at the end of it, even if we haven't been able to see it . . . Words, just sometimes, really can set you free."

Powerful. Raw. Hang on and don't give up, not yet.
It wasn't enlightening nor technical nor did it teach me anything new about mental health issues.
But it made me feel perhaps understood. As if, I'm not the only one who struggles or has struggled with this, as if yes, that's exactly how you feel.
I would definitely recommend it to those who have suffered and/or are still suffering from depression.
You can win it. You can come out of it alive. Please don't give up.
Ps. Didn't like Matt Haig as a narrator. Sorry but it just didn't work for me.
