As someone who suffers from depression I related to a lot of the contributions, and I suppose in some way reading poetry like this makes me feel less alone knowing that others are going through similar feelings to myself.
I would also strongly recommend this book to family and friends of those with mental illness. It is very difficult at times trying to explain what you are going through, and many people simply do not understand what it feels like to suffer from such illness. Poems have the ability to succinctly reflect a persons feelings, where longer prose or verbal communication fail.
Thank you Garry for putting in the time and effort to make this project a reality.
