My Journey Starts Here

A Guided Journal to Improve Your Mental Well-being



A pretty yet practical guided journal for personal reflection and working on your mental well-being.

Jazz Thornton has achieved huge international recognition for her work in advocacy for mental health and the use of voices of lived experience to provide hope to those who are struggling. This journal, written with Genevieve Mora, her co-founder of the organisation Voices of Hope, provides a creative approach to self-help in mental health and well-being.

The attractive pages will help guide the user in personal reflection, goal-setting, organising support systems and creating strategies for difficult moments. With inspirational quotes, gratitude exercises, colouring-in pages and where to find help, there is plenty here to think about and do. It is a practical and creative outlet for those struggling with mental health or simply looking to improve their personal outlook on life.
