AN ARTIST and author will be signing copies of his second book tomorrow (Saturday), which he hopes will “inspire people to rethink the way they see mental health”.

Hollis Dixon will be promoting his latest work, Life Within Life, at Waterstones in Market Place, Hitchin from 2pm until 4pm.

It follows the Hitchin resident’s first book, Life, and outlines his general and spiritual reasoning, as well as conclusions, about being diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and his subsequent recovery.

About the book, which costs £10, he said: “My writing hopefully will inspire people to rethink the way they see mental health and encorage services to think of more holistic methods of treatment.

“To those who don’t suffer from any mental issues, it is a malfunction – to those that do, it’s real life.”
