Smiley Jo with Book






Skydiving for Beginners 

A journey of recovery and hope











The launch of Jo McFarlane’s book, SkyDiving for Beginners: a journey of recovery and hope, took place on Wednesday 16th April, in the Rivers Suite at Craiglockhart.
















The event was a great success, with wonderful speeches by Dr Richard Holloway, Dr Allan Beveridge, Shaben Begum MBE and of course Jo herself, who read some moving and funny extracts from her book.








Described by Simon Bradstreet (Director of the Scottish Recovery Network) as the “poet laureate of recovery”, Jo is a well-known speaker at seminars and conferences, performing her work to packed audiences, offering hope, inspiration and an insight into living well with mental ill health.
