Thanks to Nina Mitchell we are giving away 6 of her picture books “My Mum Has Depression”.
How to explain what depression is to a child
The hero of this book is a little boy who tries hard to understand what his mum is going through. He witnesses her mood swings from deep depression to high elation.
The highs and the lows are illustrated in full colour and in a caring way, appropriate for young children.
The poignant ending says it all: “My mum has depression but she is still my Mum”.
About Nina Mitchell
The author Nina Mitchell, a mother of three boys, has been treated for depression for several years. Her association with fellow sufferers has led her to the conclusion that most mothers (and no doubt fathers) have difficulty in explaining their condition to their children. This prompted Nina to write and self publish this illustrated children’s book, “My Mum has Depression”.
