    Mental Health Advocate Linda Naomi Katz Hopes Her Book Will Help Others Survive Mental Illness

    Jewish mental health advocate, Linda Naomi Katz is pleased to announce the promotion of her memoir, Surviving Mental Illness: My Story. In her book, Katz writes of the heartbreaks and challenges of someone growing up with bipolar disorder and how she dealt with stigma and achieved recovery.

    The Road to Recovery… 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. The author shares her personal journey: the heartbreak and challenges of bipolar disorder, and the joy of making her way back to mental health. Through her own story, she shows that help is out there, and with a little faith, recovery is possible.

    Katz has received several awards for her memoir including ReadersFavorite.com's "2012 Non-Fiction: Autobiography" Silver Award, Reader's Views Life Journeys Award, and The Queen's Awards Program Best of 2013 Mental Health Services.

    Surviving Mental Illness is available in both print and ebook format.
