Title         Collateral Damage  the impacts of my mothers mental illness on me

Author      Cate Grace

This is one of the best books in this area I have read to date. It covers many deep emotions and feelings commonly experienced by people managing a parent with mental illness. It provides a remarkable depth of insight into this hidden reality. Highly commended reading and is awarded our Trophy award in 2017.Will be a valuable resource for those from this life experience.  Should be read by all health / welfare and mental health workers, religious leaders /clergy educators, policy makers police and criminal justice professionals.

The review on amazon states.

“Poignant, absorbing and thought-provoking... The powerful true story of a child who grew up with a demanding and destructive intruder in her home: her mother's mental illness. Stunning and mesmerizing, this book is an important MUST-READ for anyone wishing to understand the often devastating effects of parental mental illness on children. Cate uses evocative imagery to transport us to her childhood, allowing us to understand the impacts of her mother’s severe mental illness on her. Collateral Damage...a story that needs to be told and re-told in the context of how we support children with a parent with severe mental illness including grown up children.”
