Book launch – A life: I am what I am, by Joan Sammon

This is a memoir about childhood abuse, mental illness and resilience. The importance of asking for help and being supported by mental health professionals. Living with post-traumatic stress, schizophrenia and other mental illnesses and discovering the best medicine in the world: laughter.

This courageous story is at once unsettling and inspiring. With great wisdom and humour, Joan shares the insights and understandings that have helped her create a satisfying life. I would recommend this book to anyone who is seeking a better understanding of how to survive traumatic life events. – Dr Penny King
