Every other month, our book club selects a compelling book related to mental health, and meets as a group on the 3rd Monday of the month to discuss the featured book. The club provides an opportunity to share thoughts and ideas, and to meet others who have loved ones with mental health challenges. The club promises a safe, confidential and stimulating discussion among peers.
In January 2021, we will be discussing The Boy Between: A mother and son’s journey from a world gone grey by Amanda Prowse and Josiah Hartley.
Josiah was nineteen with the world at his feet when things changed. Without warning, the new university student's mental health deteriorated to the point that he planned his own death. His mother, bestselling author Amanda Prowse, found herself grappling for ways to help him, with no clear sense of where that could be found. This is the book they wish had been there for them during those dark times.
In this book, Josiah and Amanda hope to give a voice to those who suffer, and to show them that help can be found. It is Josiah's raw, at times bleak, sometimes humorous, but always honest account of what it is like to live with depression. It is Amanda's heart-rending account of her pain at watching him suffer, speaking from the heart about a mother's love for her child.
