Bryony Kimmings is an artist and Tim Grayburn works in advertising. Tim and Bryony are a couple. It's pretty serious stuff; they've just had a kid together for god's sake!

Six months into their relationship Bryony discovered Tim suffered from severe clinical depression and acute anxiety when she found tablets hidden in his backpack. This was a secret Tim had kept from almost everyone for nearly a decade because it made him feel both weak and shameful. Mental illness does this to men all over the planet and it's messed up!

In 2015 - after tackling the depression head on as a couple behind closed doors - Tim and Bryony made the life-changing decision to come clean and spill the details of the complexities of Tim's broken brain, and how they ensure their relationship survives, by making a theatre show and touring the world. This show, Fake it 'til you Make it, has become a phenomena - connecting the couple with others who suffer silently. Encouraging them to stand up to the stigma, come to terms with their own mental health and live more honestly.

Boys Don't Cry is the story of a relationship in which one party sometimes wants to die. A book about deep love and depression written from both sides; the person with the illness and the person who supports them through it. A wickedly warming, brutally honest and heart-breaking tale about what it really takes to be a 'real man', written by two people who decided that they wanted to change the world by no longer being silent.

It'll make you laugh, it'll make you cry, and it'll make you feel less alone.
