I said 'Take me to the doctor and we can start from there'

Lynn Freeman speaks to a first time author whose book is being read by parents and teenagers alike. 22 year old Erin Donohue's Because Everything is Right but Everything is Wrong throws the spotlight on a fictional boy in his final year of high school who is struggling with anxiety and depression. The book is based on Erin's own teenage experience of mental health treatments for anorexia. Demand for child and adolescent mental health services has risen by about 30% in the last five years, and Erin's hope is her book will help friends and family understand mental illness a little bit more.
