OCD, Anxiety, Panic Attacks and Related Depression

Adam Shaw, Co-Founder of Trigger | Lauren Callaghan



From the heart and soul of lifelong mental health sufferer; Adam Shaw, combined with the expert mind of the talented and leading psychologist; Lauren Callaghan, this book is cohesively divided into two helpful parts. Detailed from the separate perspectives of a sufferer and a psychologist is an insight into mental health recovery that sufferers can really relate to.
In Part One we follow Adam’s desperate lifelong struggle with OCD, anxiety, panic attacks and related depression, leading him to the brink of suicide. We witness his journey from the painful despair of a young man who never really understood the illness tormenting him. Meeting Lauren changed his world forever as she guided him on the road to recovery with a life free from mental health issues. Sufferers with any type of mental health condition will identify with Adam’s suffering and the daily struggles he faced. Lauren’s wisdom, expertise and compassionate approach led Adam to recovery and how she did this is captured perfectly as she provides valuable insight into why and how Adam struggled with his condition and what needed to be done to ensure his path to recovery and beyond.
Part Two is Pullingthetrigger, the definitive survival and recovery approach for OCD, anxiety, panic attacks and related depression. It is a unique, user-friendly self-help approach to support and guide mild, moderate and severe sufferers to a place called recovery and beyond.
