How To Academy: Ruby Wax Meets Julia Samuel

These days, trying to stay sane in a completely chaotic world makes life incredibly difficult, especially if you’re struggling with your mental health. While searching for inner peace and equanimity amidst global chaos, Ruby realises that, ultimately, the most challenging gauntlet we all must face is ourselves.

Ruby Wax, joined by psychotherapist and author Julia Samuel, returns to How To Academy for an honest and raw journey into the depths of her psyche, and a stark exploration of what trauma can do to someone.

Reflecting on years of personal and professional experience, she will open up about her struggles with mental health and different treatments over the years, hoping to provide reassurance and guidance to anyone confronting their own anticipated, or unanticipated, struggles with mental health.

Praise for Ruby Wax’s I’m Not as Well as I Thought I Was:

‘Not only will this book make you feel less alone, it also might just change your life’ – Scarlett Curtis

‘An exceptional account on mental health from a true tour de force. We’re all a little messed up in our own ways, but we should all strive to be as fabulously fearless as Ruby’ – Fearne Cotton

‘If you buy only one book this year, make it this one. Brilliant, heartbreakingly funny and painful: I couldn’t put it down’ – Joanna Lumley

‘A book about ways to find yourself, from someone who knows that she is lost. I’m glad this book exists’ – Neil Gaiman
