About this deal

Having initially dealt with these issues in silence, Frankie has been keen to support MIND in making sure no one has to face a mental health problem alone. Being in the public eye, that sudden feeling of being so out of control of my body was really hard for me. But that just goes to show that looks can be deceiving and even ‘happy’ people have hidden battles going on. She describes the love she felt for her new arrival as 'overwhelming and terrifying' and difficult to put into words. Never does she preach cures or advice, it is simply the bare bones of her experience and it was raw and emotional, it made me emotional about my journey.

This is not intended to be a full statement of all your rights under the Distance Selling Regulations. In OPEN, Frankie Bridge, ex-The Saturdays, opens up about her ongoing journey from breakdown to breakthroughs and through self-loathing, hospitalization and self-acceptance. Grow is the story of her journey through motherhood and the impact it had her and her mental wellbeing. Part narrative exploration, part first aid manual for mothers, the book offers a brutally honest account of how hard it can be to grow a baby and raise a child whilst you are still growing into yourself.Alastair Campbell About the AuthorFrankie Bridge is an ambassador for MIND after opening up about her experiences of anxiety, depression and panic attacks, after her hospitalisation in May 2012.

Obviously it isn’t the font of all knowledge guidebook that will cure you of your anxiety/depression, and Frankie admits that herself. When the baby is inside you, there's a part of you that knows the safety of your baby is mainly out of your hands.

It’s fantastic to see someone with a platform such as Frankie’s advocate for the destigmatisation of mental health, but certain words, phrases and anecdotes used made me uncomfortable. The Masked Singer UK's Lorraine Kelly, 64, delighted judges guessed she was 'a wee lassie': 'I need to ring Frankie Bridge to apologise! This book just affirms that saying be kind because you never know what someone is going through and it’s so true. Such an important book for younger generations to be able to relate to, and fantastic to have people like this willing to stand up and talk about their struggles.

I can't help but use this platitude - Frankie has been so brave in opening up and sharing her story. Sometimes I feel I'm not good enough and that I'm not the best daughter, sister, auntie, girlfriend or friend and it takes for me to take some time to myself and to distract my mind away from thoughts like this because I know that they are irrational and I can only do my best. If you think of cave men and women, I bet they didn't put their children to sleep in the cave next to the one they were in!Marcus Rashford 'went on a 12-hour tequila bender in Belfast' as he was spotted in nightclub last week. But I would also recommend to everyone else in continuing to raise awareness surrounding the impact of mental health and what we can do to support. I definitely think it's great that celebrities like herself are being open and are trying to help and bring to light the effects of mental health for everyone.

I had just so happened to run out of my tablets the day before the bank holiday which meant I couldn't get them even longer.I have been through a very similar journey (slightly different diagnoses) but I was amazed at the recognisable truth and transparency with which Frankie wrote this. Other cancelled products: If you want to cancel products that are not damaged or incorrectly supplied, then you must inform us of this within seven working days following the date of receipt in accordance with the Distance Selling Regulations or otherwise as soon as possible. Other than that it's a well-written and agonizing account of Frankie Bridges' transition from illness to acceptance. Talking about our mental health is so important and I love that Frankie talks about both therapy and medication as not cures to her mental illness but as an important step in helping her get better. The fact that the author is a pop star, in my opinion, detracts from its value because one says to oneself, "this can't be happening to me.
