'I love this book ... an important addition to the literature on mental health', Alastair CampbellMark Simmonds' life was mapped out from the very beginning: go to university, climb the corporate ladder, marry and have children. But life isn't so easy, and success is hard to manage. After making what seemed like the right move in his career, Mark suffered from increasing levels of stress and anxiety, leading to his nervous breakdown.As the ground he’d stood on for years started to crumble, Mark did something he never thought he'd do: he stepped back from his work to focus on creating a balance in his life. But then his world fell apart for a second time when his daughter, Emily, became anorexic.Finding strength he never knew he had, Mark fought alongside Emily, both lost, both scared, but finding solace in one other.Breakdown and Repair tells the touching tale of a father saving himself by saving his daughter.
