Everything Is OK is the story of Debbie Tung’s struggle with anxiety and her experience with depression. She shares what it’s like navigating life, overthinking every possible worst-case scenario, and constantly feeling like all hope is lost.
The book explores her journey to understanding the importance of mental health in her day-to-day life and how she learns to embrace the highs and lows when things feel out of control. Debbie opens up about deeply personal issues and the winding road to recovery, discovers the value of self-love, and rebuilds a more mindful relationship with her mental health.
In this graphic memoir, Debbie aims to provide positive and comforting messages to anyone who is facing similar difficulties or is just trying to get through a tough time in life. She hopes to encourage readers to be kinder to themselves, to know that they are not alone, and that it’s okay to be vulnerable because they are not defined by their mental health struggles. The dark clouds won’t be there forever. Everything will turn out all right.

I'm a huge love of Debbie's illustration work but Everything is OK really does blow it out of the water. At multiple times, I caught myself nodding along with her illustrations and thoughts and even said jokingly to my colleague, 'Jesus Debbie just illustrate my life why don't you!'. Everything is OK is a poignant account of Debbie's experiences and journey with her mental health and I just know that this will not only help those already suffering but will also make those who may not be aware - or maybe who have been afraid to ask for help - realize that they too are not OK and could use a helping hand.
This book was AMAZING! I feel like this author has crawled through my mind and articulated everything I can never manage to say and they did it in a concise way that is easy to digest. They did not use too many words , they did not use confusing language. Furthermore the little therapy bites were amazing and helpful. For anyone new to these feelings or new to the idea of seeking treatment I feel like this book could demistify therapy and alleviate some of that fear and shame of seeking help. This was beautifully written and drawn. I cannot sing enough praises for this book and now I have to find their other book!
Everything is OK is a hopeful story about mental health, dealing with anxiety and depression, and learning to treat yourself with kindness. I can recommend it to anyone struggling with mental health or who wants to get a glimpse into the lives of people who do. Debbie depicts many of the struggles I've been going through and the slow recovery journey. Throughout this entire book, I've felt like I'm following my own story of accepting that sometimes I might need to ask for help. Beautifully illustrated, this book couldn't have found me at a better time.
Now I need to check if Debbie is selling any prints inspired by these pages - I sometimes need a reminder that Everything is OK.
Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
