Flagging the Problem

A new approach to mental health

By Harry Barry

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

A practical guide to understanding and coping with anxiety, depression, addiction and suicide using the groundbreaking 'FLAG' system devised by Dr Harry Barry.

A practical guide to understanding and coping with anxiety, depression, addiction and suicide.

Flagging The Problem: A New Approach to Mental Health investigates how the mood system in the brain and the body works, and how problems in this system contribute to anxiety, depression, addiction and suicide.

Bestselling author and GP Dr Harry Barry reveals a pioneering system using a coloured flag which represents a particular mental state or area of concern:
- Green Flag explains the normal mood system
-The Red Flag deals with depression
- The Yellow Flag addresses anxiety
- The Purple Flag deals with addiction
- The White Flag addresses the issue of suicide.

Using this system to help readers visualise the illness and its symptoms, Dr Barry aims to provide hope to those suffering from depression, addiction, anxiety and suicidal thoughts and with it the possibility of a new life where the pain can be alleviated.

Previously published as Flagging the Problem: A New Approach to Mental Health, this edition has been fully revised and updated.

When was the last time you felt 'wonder'? The feeling of amazement and admiration, caused by something beautiful, remarkable, or unfamiliar is one that, as children, we experienced often. But as adults we have grown tired and cynical and spend more time looking down at our phones than looking up at the sky. We no longer experience the power of awe nor its proven benefits.The Little Book of Wonder encourages you to be creative, feel curious and wonder for the world around us. Focussed around seven themes, echoing the seven wonders of the world, the book will explore:1. The Wonder of You2. Into the Woods3. Curious4. Magic5. Creativity6. The Road Less Travelled7.

365 Days of Self-Care: A Journal

Jayne Hardy
Authors:
Jayne Hardy

It's one thing to understand how important self-care is, but how many of us actually manage to make the time do it? Self-care is a preventative action that focuses on our health and happiness, and yet so often it gets put aside when other things, and people, vie for our time and attention - it's often only when life has knocked us to our knees that we realise how vitally important it is. Following on from the hugely popular The Self-Care Project, Jayne Hardy, CEO and founder of The Blurt Foundation, helps us plan for obstacles, devise contingency plans, be mindful of the way our days play out, and prioritise the things that are truly important to us. With the flexibility of choosing to start the journal anytime; on any day, in any year, this is the essential companion for bringing more self-care into our lives.
