Not only is Rae Earl’s brilliant Your Brain Needs A Hug an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about taking care of their mental health, it is engaging and fun to read. Using her own experiences and those of people she knows, Rae provides easy-to-understand, practical advice and information on a variety of mental illnesses—OCD, eating disorders, anxiety, and depression to name a few. What makes this book so great is that Rae is open, honest, and humourous about her own mental health struggles, truly showing her readers that they are not alone. She uses no unintelligible scientific terms, and she also lists resources (websites and hotlines) that could potentially save a life. While this is an informative book, it first and foremost an enjoyable, laugh-out-loud read, and I strongly recommend it to everyone. Yes, everyone—no matter your personal interests or situation, everyone has mental health that needs to be cared for. Read it!
