This site is for any child who has a family member suffering from PTSD or any other mental illness.
Hi, my name is Niamh Finlay Howe and I live with my mum, dad and little brother in a small village in Cambridgeshire. Anyone who has read my books will know that my family is rather special. My dad is actually my mum's best friend and the person she has been a carer for since I was at primary school.
My daddy was in the army for most of his life and has seen and done things that have affected him ever since. I know what it is like to have a dad who hates fire work night and jumps out of his skin when a car back fires and finds things upsetting that we would ignore. If you have someone in your family like this or is special in other ways keep reading.
If this site helps one other kid or an adult to know that they are not alone, I'm happy
