My Happy Sad Mummy

  • Category:Book/Booklet

My Happy Sad Mummy is a sensitive story, told from a child's viewpoint about her mother who has bipolar disorder. It's easy to understand and beautifully illustrated. Importantly, it fills a major gap: explaining to a young child the impact on a parent of a mental illness such as bipolar disorder. This is a great resource for parents, teachers and mental health workers.
Available for purchase online from Booktopia for $11.90.
