Book Review: Save-My-Life School: A first responder's mental health journey by Natalie Harris

Book Description:

This intense and engaging memoir is based on the true life of Natalie Harris. Mental illness, post-traumatic stress syndrome, overdoses and addiction are some of the demons this paramedic turned author deals with--stemming from a horrific double-murder call. This incredible story makes public the very private battles many face. This book is raw, honest and a window into the mind of someone facing mental illness. Although a serious topic, this biography is at times laugh-out-loud funny, poignant and simply a good, entertaining read. This is a must-have for anyone who wants a cover-to-cover read, keeping you on the edge of your seat.

My Review:

I love a good memoir and this one is just amazing. "Save-My-Life School: A first responder's mental health journey" is raw, real, brutally honest, and a shatteringly descriptive lens into the author's life and mental health journey.  In this well written true story, Harris takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster of tears and laughter as you delve deep into her story of dealing with post-traumatic stress syndrome and addiction triggered in part by her work as a paramedic.  A must read for anyone facing mental health challenges, and their loved ones, regardless of whether they work in emergency services or not.  I highly recommend!
