What does it mean to be a woman in the modern world? Howdoes our understanding of the different roles and expectations placed on womenaffect us in our day-to-day life and interactions? And what to do if it allbecomes just a bit too much.? The editors of The Female Mind: A User's Guide have asked their colleagues, menand women, from various healthcare professions and women with lived experienceof mental illness to attempt to answer those questions. What emerged is a guidethat in 35 chapters empowers women in navigating the different states, emotionsand conversations around their mental health, and enables men to understandwhat life might be like for their sisters, partners and friends. The book'sdiverse range of topics spans anxiety, motherhood, eating disorders, what itmeans to grow up as a woman, and living positively with mental illness. Itgives helpful tips and lists useful resources, and draws on a wide number ofincredible stories from women's lives, from teenagers to mature women, andincludes inspirational accounts from women who lead satisfying lives despitesometimes struggling with mental illness.

In her foreword to the book, Claire Eastham, the popular bloggerbehind We're All Mad Here, calls it 'a friendly guided tour of a woman'sbrain'. We hope it will become just that to all who read it.
