I’m excited to announce the release of my third book in June of this year. It is a memoir about my schizophrenic brother and a deeply personal account of my family as seen through the fractured lens of mental illness.
But mental illness isn’t a solitary affliction. It often strains and tears at the relationships of loved ones even to the point of destroying families, friendships, and careers. If you have a friend or family member struggling to cope with mental illness, you, too, understand how their battle can become your own. I hope my new book will help illuminate the dark corners of our conversations around mental illness and provide some comfort to the many families and friends who may feel alone, empty, or misunderstood in their own struggle to support a loved one living with an emotional or psychological disorder.
