The Breakdown That Made Me looks at not only Emma’s journey from illness to wellness, it also offers guidance and insight for others who may find themselves in a similar situation especially now as life has become hard for many during the COVID-19 crisis. 

The Breakdown That Made Me

Emma’s book explores the experience of having a complete mental health collapse whilst trying to be a mother to a toddler, while also looking at the way mental health is treated in other cultures. 

Emma offers many potential solutions including gut health, spiritual study, alternative medication, as well as traditional routes.  She firmly believes that every mental health collapse has its own story and its own way back to wellness.

This book enabled her to look at many of the differing routes back to wellness and she is delighted to be able to share her discoveries. 

Reading Never Goes Out of Style

Mental Health

‘I feel so supported that everyone has praised me for speaking out about mental health and offering hope for recovery. What I didn’t bank on was getting attention in countries like India! To be in this position makes me so happy because when I had the breakdown I didn’t think I would ever survive, so to think that I am now giving others hope is a great comfort’ said Emma – pen name Morag Morgan.

It just shows how everyone is struggling on a global level with poor mental health. An Indian teenager left a voice message on my Instagram account the other day, she was in tears of happiness,  thanking me for writing the book. It also made me cry;  I was so glad the book had hit a note with people on the other side of the world.’

As part of her recovery she discovered many new hobbies including being taught foraging with her 83-year-old neighbour Raymond. They now meet weekly and she has found learning and extracting Raymond’s years of wisdom on the subject has helped her focus on healthy eating and getting in touch with nature again.
