I had a book printed on a short print run to help raise awareness around the issues of child abuse and mental health, which I am glad to say it did. Many of the words from the book can be heard for free via youtube videos of poems & stories from it. Most of the copies of the book were given for free to genuine people or causes with some used to raise money for Samaritans etc.
Back cover description: "This book is an expression of true feeling and thoughts through Poetry & Prose. It portrays the world of Child Abuse, the forced silence & inner one too. It goes through the range of emotions dealing with the consequences and aftermath of Abuse not least through the effects later in life with Mental instability & illness. It is a true, accurate and completely honest portrayal of the suffering & injustice but also of the hope too. And just like my real life story. I hope that the love contained within these pages are not too hidden from you as you turn them, but most importantly of all... when you finish the last one"
"John Harrison's journey through his inner turmoil and experiences and in dealing with the mental health system should be shared among the profession as an account of how it can fail an individual, lessons could be learned."
