HEY! YOU! WHO CHECKED OUT THIS BOOK! The cover caught your attention, huh? And now you’re reading the book description, hoping you’re not going to identify with any of the themes to avoid validating your fears and having to admit to yourself that you are someone who…struggles. But guess what? You’re not alone. This workbook is here to help! This book will help you identify and course-correct the parts of your psyche that you hate and fear the most. Maybe your anxiety is spiraling out of control, and you can’t sleep. Or maybe you’re experiencing panic attacks that make you feel like you’re dying. Or maybe you have depressive episodes so intense you feel like your brain is stuck in a storm cloud with no end in sight. I’m here to tell ya…
DON’T F*CKING PANIC.
This book covers all those worries and fears that they don’t tell you about in therapy or the things you’re too embarrassed to talk to your doctor about: the thought that you’re “going crazy,” the wave of poo you get after a panic attack, the passive thought of wanting to die sometimes—THIS BOOK ISN’T AFRAID OF YOU AND YOUR BEAUTIFUL BRAIN!! Don’t F*cking Panic is your mental health manual. It is meant to be carried with you and pulled out the moment you need support. There are honest-as-shit tips, tricks, exercises, and stories covering our holy trinity of mental health disorders: ANXIETY DISORDER, PANIC ATTACKS, and DEPRESSION!
Comedian and mental health advocate Kelsey Darragh created this book because she knows what it feels like to panic. She has spent her career at BuzzFeed, YouTube, and the “Confidently Insecure” podcast sharing her unique perspective as someone who desperately searched for answers before ultimately learning how to manage anxiety, panic, and depression successfully.

Simply put, this book is f*cking great. As a psychologist and fellow potty-mouthed self-help author, I would highly suggest this book for anyone struggling with anxiety and even for mental health professionals who could use a whole bunch of helpful exercises for their clients. The book is written in a hilarious and personal way that defuses the scariness and intensity that anxiety can bring. Most importantly, it's HELPFUL. Kelsey talks through her own experiences with anxiety and shares actual tips and exercises that can help you reduce your anxiety RIGHT NOW. There aren't many books that cover everything from how to leave parties to why you should probably not take cocaine when you have anxiety. If you are tired of lofty, unapproachable books about anxiety, give “Don't F*cking Panic” a shot.You will get a ton of valuable information and laugh your ass off in the process.
