Written from the perspective of someone whose life has been challenged by mental illness, this book offers help, hope and inspiration to others struggling with psychological disorders. It provides information about mental illness in general-and mood disorders in particular - valuable tips about treatment and medication, and resources and organizations dedicated to helping those suffering from these disorders.
Surviving Mental Illness helps break through the fear and stigma of mental illness and focuses on how to find health and happiness. In this book, I share my personal journey: the heartbreak and challenges that I had faced in growing up with bipolar disorder and the joy of making my way back to mental health. As a result of my own recovery I show that help is out there, and with a little faith, recovery is possible.
