Kim Hodges

"Girl Over The Edge” is the new memoir by Kim Hodges. Kim Hodges has lived with mental illness for the last five years: bipolar 2 disorder, severe depression, generalised anxiety disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

In this follow up to her incredibly successful debut memoir Girl on the Edge (2016), Girl Over the Edge will take the reader into severe episodes of depression, on the road to recovery and everything else in between.

“The black dog of depression corrodes identity, compromises the capacity to see colours in life, limits the capacity to love and to work, and takes the sufferer into a wasteland without hope. In her raw and personal account, Kim Hodges details how her mood disorder stripped her bare, and articulates what has kept her going. The reader will be struck by her honesty and authenticity.” Professor Gordon Parker, founder, Black Dog Institute.

Kim Hodges currently resides on the NSW north coast and immerses herself in the pristine beauty of beaches, mountains and estuaries. Kim has been employed in many professional roles: tutor and lecturer in the School of Arts and Social Sciences (Southern Cross University), and a consultant in curriculum development (TAFENSW) and policy (NSW Government).
