A practical and inspiring self-help guide to encourage anyone feeling apprehensive or uncomfortable about starting a conversation to step into their power, talk about their mental health and help them to support themselves as well as others in the same situation.
Let's be honest, it can be really awkward talking about your mental health.
In this hugely relatable practical and inspiring self-help guide, Michelle Morgan, Ambassador for Mental Health First Aid England provides a roadmap to encourage anyone feeling apprehensive or uncomfortable about starting a conversation about how they feel to step into their power, talk about their mental health to support themselves as well as others in the same situation.
Blending a much sought-after balance of information and inspiration with the personal and practical Own Your Awkward elegantly marries the lived experience with expert advice around the topic of mental health in an accessible and approachable tone.
Michelle introduces the reader to her highly successful tried and tested frameworks, BRAVE - being brave and having the courage to ask for help, and SENSE - using common sense and sensitivity to offer help, which she uses with her clients around the world. Michelle will show you step-by-step how to use the different techniques outlined as well as sharing her self-care M-Plan. By owning her awkward, she'll help you to own yours, so that others can own theirs, and together we'll get comfortable feeling uncomfortable and smash the stigma of talking about our mental health.
This book will show you not only how to transform panic into your greatest power and help others to do the same, but also how to turn awkward into your greatest asset yet.
