The Unseen Side of the Moon

by

The Unseen Side of the Moon is an unflinching, brutally honest first-hand account into the severity of mental health illnesses. 


Expressed through thought-provoking poetry from a writer who does not shy away from the harsh truths of being mentally ill, the book was born after he suffered a nervous breakdown at the age of 24. Written over the five years which followed and culminating with this book, it covers: bipolar, depression, suicide, panic disorder, anxiety, alcoholism, OCD and heartbreak. 

Within these pages are poems which were captured during the darkest and most unsettling moments of his life. At times disturbing, the book is written in such a revealing manner to address one of the biggest issues sufferers face in society today; being made to feel ashamed when talking about their mental health. 

Each piece intends to show others who are suffering that they are not alone in feeling such torture and to help them find solace from this. 

Told in explicit detail, The Unseen Side of the Moon is divided into five chapters: the mind, the pain, depression is, the reasons and hope.

Received my book early, it’s a fantastic read and something I can relate to.

A fantastic insight into one persons journey and the daily struggles that they face.
So powerful in poetry form as the words seem even stronger as there are no 'fillers'

by Andy Bissell


An honest and much needed perspective of the world that many feel every day. And here it all is, on paper.

Don't ever be afraid to speak out if you believe your suffering from mental health issues.

The Unseen Side of the Moon is a book which will help many. We think in blocks and its so well written in how the author has interpreted this to the reader.
