Front cover of Playing with the Pieces

Nick Alldridge's first poetry collection charts his struggle against depression, dealing sensitively with the ups and downs in his search for recovery - 2016.

Anyone who has experienced mental health issues will know how "playing with the pieces" feels. Nick Alldridge's poems explore everything from the raw emotions of losing control " moths through lighter fuel" to the simple honesty of "I am depressed."

These poems are unafraid to talk about serious issues and feelings and will hopefully encourage others to share their problems with family, friends and colleagues. This is a book that will comfort anyone who has experienced mental problems themselves or in those they care about.

You can order the paperback for £8.99 (excluding postage) from this page or from Amazon, ISBN 978-0-9556770-3-8. Or download the Kindle version. Please contact us at if you have any delivery queries
