Description

During some self-reflection when he was still working in A&E, George says he realised he wasn’t practising what he preached. "I thought, ‘I’m here talking about finding balance and looking after your own mental health, and I’m actually damaging my own mental health by doing too much."

Self-worth is often so tied up with the roles we have in our careers, so it was a difficult decision to leave, he says. "Since the age of 12 or 13, I’d wanted to be a doctor. You sacrifice a lot, university is tough, I worked in King’s College Hospital then Lewisham Hospital [London]. It was my passion, I covered a lot of the pandemic – on social media, it was my identity. Dr Alex George has revealed that more than 150 days without alcohol has been "a challenge" but has made a "huge difference" to his life.

Comments

What you do consistently has a direct impact on your day-to-day health, your immune system, your mental health, your metabolism, your bone density, your heart health, your blood pressure, your energy levels and how you fight disease genreally. Your lifestyle is often your body's biggest support system and the more robust you can make that, the more you can rely on it to get you through. Think of it like your life insurance policy. About This Edition ISBN: It was really great to speak with both the Prime Minister and Dr Alex George this morning. I am pleased that they are committed to fighting such an important issue and hope that the insights of young people can help them bring about the most effective change.” In the last few years, there have been some significant highs and lows, but I do think what I’m grateful for is that in adversity, you learn a huge amount. I endured."

George passionately believes that “we must change the idea of what it is to be masculine. You can follow female leadership, you can learn from women, you can show your sensitivities, you don't have to be strong all the time and act like bullets bounce off you.” Alex said he wanted to use his experience positively and came up with the idea of sharing it as a social media post. His friends suggested coming up with a hashtag to help raise awareness about taking medication and antidepressants. There is still lots more work to be done to make sure every young person gets the support they need and deserve for their mental health. This is a positive step forward in cementing mental health at the heart of UK Government’s recovery plans from the pandemic and beyond.” Ben, YoungMinds Activist, says:Watch the video of the PM and Dr Alex George listening to four young people talk about their mental health

The book discusses the ‘mental health toolkit’ George developed while he was grieving and growing – "Not just as a tribute to Llŷr but as a tribute to the mental anguish I have faced in life, both before and since his death". It includes written exercises to help readers audit their feelings as well as ‘universal truths’ to cling to in dark times, like "sleep is a saviour" and "connection is your superpower".From the people who brought you the Mindapples "5-a-day for your mind" campaign, The Mind Manual is an accessible guide to what's going on But you are a journalist”. said Alex. “Change that. You are a journalist. You’re doing journalism right now.” What you do consistently has a direct impact on your day-to-day health, your immune system, your mental health, your metabolism, your bone density, your heart health, your blood pressure, your energy levels and how you fight disease generally. Your lifestyle is often your body's biggest support system and the more robust you can make that, the more you can rely on it to get you through. Think of it like your life insurance policy. On bullying we talk for a long time, about the multiple, unremitting, “nuanced” and insidious ways it can manifest in young people’s lives in the digital age.

The publisher’s synopsis says: “ The Mind Manual will show you how to assess your mental health today and understand what’s normal for you. It will reveal the seven universal truths that everyone should remember and the mental fitness foundations that will boost you. Lana, YoungMinds Activist, says: “It was an absolute privilege to be given the opportunity to talk to the Prime Minister and Dr Alex on a topic I’m so passionate about - I can’t wait to see what the future of children and young people’s mental health holds!” Emma Thomas, Chief Executive of YoungMinds, says: Aster, part of the Octopus Publishing Group, has signed The Mind Manual: Mental Fitness Tools for Everyone by Dr Alex George.Take a Look at Our Summary of November Highlights, Whether You're Looking for the Latest Releases or Gift Inspiration Dr Alex is on a mission to empower us to make our own health choices, take positive control and feel equipped and inspired to make those small changes today that energise and future-proof for life.

Me being an ardent Liverpool fan, we laughed off the Liverpool-Man United rivalry here. “It’s all fun and banter”, joked Alex. He stressed: “It’s not being pro-medication – it’s actually being anti-stigma. It’s the idea that if you need help, you should have access to that without shame. Taking medication should be a decision between you and your doctor, the pros and the cons, not whether you feel ashamed or not. That’s what it comes down to.”
