106 : Piece of Mind with David Mark

David Mark is recognised as a 'master of the dark psychological thriller', drawing upon his 15 years of experience as a crime journalist. 

After a decade as a full-time novelist and Sunday Times bestseller, David penned the critically-acclaimed memoir PIECE OF MIND, detailing his lifelong battle with depression, mania, OCD, addiction and hallucinations. 

The book has been labelled 'a life-saver' and 'essential reading' by readers, contemporaries, and mental health professionals. 

  • How he feels that unbroken means that he’s like a wild horse as he’s not had his will snapped or been broken into submission by his illness.
  • How he believes that he’s so much more than the events in his life.
  • How being truthful was not as difficult as he thought it would be when he was writing his memoir,
  • How writing really helped him to work out what was his illness and what was his personality.
  • How he used to think he was demonic because of the hideous hallucinations he experienced but managed to grow used to them by learning what was real and what wasn’t.
  • How he still struggles with the idea of being vulnerable and weak.
  • How he can’t emphasis enough that we should treat people who are unwell with tenderness, patience and compassion.
  • How he now feels he’s at the best he’ll ever be and never though he could be this well with his mental illness.
