"One of the best Depression books of all time" - BookAuthority


What do you do when you're trapped in your mind? When you can't escape the feelings of depression and fear? 


A Way Out gives a raw, unfiltered look into the life and thoughts of a young woman, Michelle, experiencing severe depression and social anxiety. Social anxiety plagued her since her early youth, hindering her most as a young adult. She began having suicidal thoughts in her early teens but didn't perceive them as being abnormal. This eventually evolved into a deep depression. Her social anxiety and depression fueled each other, creating a grave cycle of negative thoughts.


Michelle is able to share her experiences in a way that allows others to go along for the ride with her: the highs, the lows, and the amusingly unexpected. It artfully conveys Michelle's journey through mental illness and toward mental health. Beyond the haunting honesty, A Way Out delivers heart, humour, and hope.
