Packed full of practical tips and amazing stories, A Better Life talks frankly and inspiringly about living a happy, fulfilling life, even with mental health issues.
A frank and inspiring guide to living a happy, fulfilling life with the challenge of a mental health issue.
A Better Life is a rich blend of Craig Hamilton's own amazing story of how as a busy broadcaster, dad, husband and mental health campaigner, he lives with bipolar. Craig also shares the experiences of others in the public eye who are dealing with mental illness, including powerful and practical material from Andrew Johns ( bipolar disorder), Garry McDonald ( anxiety and depression), Jessica Rowe ( postnatal depression) and Wally Lewis (depression). Craig's authentic, practical and reassuring advice is underpinned by a wicked sense of humour that lifts the darker aspects of his story and makes for a truly compelling read.
CRAIG HAMILTON is a sports commentator on ABC's weekly Grandstand program. He's been an Ambassador for Beyond Blue since 2005 and does many presentations around the country for them. Craig speaks regularly at conferences, including the Comcare National Conference twice, Community Forums, workplaces and schools. Workplace requests for Craig to talk are increasing as more information is sought about depression, anxiety and all the work/life balance issues that go with the busy pace of life today. Last year, Craig gave the Grace Groom Oration at the Canberra Press Club to commemorate the former CEO of the Mental Health Council of Australia. WILL SWANTON has been a sports writer for a decade. He is the author of two previous books published by Allen + Unwin: Some Day and Murder Ball.
