Tá mamma verður ør
Gyðja is 6 years old and not unlike most 6-year-old girls. But Gyðja’s mother is not quite like most other mothers. She suffers from a mental illness, which sometimes makes her very tired – and sometimes she needs to go to the hospital.
Tá mamma verður ør (When mummy goes nuts) is the story of what being the child of a parent suffering from mental illness feels like. The story is also intended as a tool for adults to use in discussions with affected children, or for teaching about the subject in kindergartens or schools.
