"Incredible "--Samantha Irby, New York Times bestselling author of We Are Never Meeting in Real Life and Meaty

Raw, witty, and unapologetic, That's Mental is a collection of laugh-out-loud funny, confessional essays about the inappropriate, devastating, and strangely amusing side to being mentally ill.

In her book, British comedy writer Amanda Rosenberg breaks down myths and misconceptions about what it means to live, laugh, love with bipolar II in a darkly funny, but familiar way. That's Mental dives head-first into the overlooked and offbeat issues of mental illness, it shines a harsh, fitting room light on thoughts and ideas that are often avoided, because they're uncomfortable or just downright embarrassing.

These pages move through the everyday realities of mental illness, covering everything from, how reaching out for help is a fucking nightmare, to dealing with people who suggest "cures" for your depression, to making up excuses to miss work just so you can take a mental health day. That's Mental is an uproarious and brutally honest collection of confessions from someone who's been there, done that, and still has no idea what she's doing.
