Heavy Light: A Journey Through Madness, Mania and Healing
Travel writer Horatio Clare’s latest book is at the forefront of breakthroughs around the understanding and treatment of mental health disorders. It is the story of the author’s own breakdown: a journey through mania, psychosis and treatment in a psychiatric hospital, and onwards to release, recovery and healing. Described as, “a record of the bravest, most perilous, most intrepid journey that any human being can ever make. . . A luminous, beautiful achievement” (Niall Griffiths), the book examines with kindness and humour how we experience, treat and regard madness. In conversation with Mother’s Choice COO Rebecca Brosnan, Horatio Clare illuminates a fundamental part of human experience and asks urgent questions about mental health that affect each and every one of us.
