From the author of acclaimed The Time In Between - what mental illness is really like, and how we can all better understand the mentally unwell.

'In the waiting room, I see a lot of people who I could tell had real, serious problems. They deserve to be here. I don't. I'm a fraud. A lazy wreck seeking an excuse for her incompetence. I'm useless.' Abby, 24

Having conducted over 100 hours of interviews with 60 women aged 16-25, Nancy Tucker- the author of The Time In Between, an 'astonishingly good' (Sunday Times) memoir of a life consumed by eating disorders- explores what it's like to suffer from serious mental illness as a young woman.

With raw honesty, sensitivity and humour, That Was When People Started to Worry examines real experiences of anxiety, self-harm, borderline personality disorder, OCD, binge eating disorder, PTSD and dissociative identity disorder. Giving a voice to those like Abby who can't speak out themselves, Tucker presents a unique window into the day-to-day trials of living with an unwell mind.
