Hidden Lives: true stories from people who live with mental illness
2nd edition available now
Hidden Lives is a groundbreaking anthology of evocative life stories by writers who either suffer from or have close family members who have been diagnosed with a serious mental health or developmental disorder. The candid accounts in this collection give readers a place to turn while also looking to break the stigma and silence that continues to exist around mental illness. The writers come from every region in Canada, the United States, and Israel. They recount their experiences with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, autism, obsessive-compulsive disorder, clinical depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and dissociative identity disorder.
With a foreword by physician and bestselling author, Gabor Maté, MD, “Hidden Lives is a pivotal collection of honest, illuminating, and sometimes painful first-hand accounts of life with mental illness.”
