    What a beautifully written semi autobiographical story of the struggle of a young girl attempting to refocus her energies on the real world, making the transition from being mentally ill and being mentally well, as well as the stigma placed on those who have psychiatric diagnoses As someone with experience both as a mental health professional and a patient, I can see both perspectives It is never easy to go from the safety of the hospital environment back into the world, where one must live a What a beautifully written semi autobiographical story of the struggle of a young girl attempting to refocus her energies on the real world, making the transition from being mentally ill and being mentally well, as well as the stigma placed on those who have psychiatric diagnoses As someone with experience both as a mental health professional and a patient, I can see both perspectives It is never easy to go from the safety of the hosp...
