In the first instance, it should be read by children in the company of an adult who can discuss and answer questions immediately and with understanding. It is an invaluable support to help children understand the difficulties and issues that they may face when a member of their family is affected by a serious mental illness.

We hope that this book will also go some way to dispel the stigma and the myths around the illness and improve understanding.

For more information on schizophrenia or other mental illness, we have a library of latest news and research here.

The book was inspired by two members of a family affected by serious mental illness and was brought together by members of the NSF (Scotland) (Support in Mind Scotland's original name) Stonehaven Carers Group. The author was Jane Rawlinson, Andy Moir supplied the original artwork, Mark McLeod the original layout, while carers support worker Roddie Wood was also instrumental in creating the book.

We are indebted to Mark Ewens for modernising and redesigning the book in 2018 and to his Lloyds Banking Group colleague Shona Cook for her role in taking the project forward, as well as our Trustee Nicole Bell.
