NEW YORK, NY – October 5, 2016 – The National Institute of Mental Health states that 5.7 million adult Americans or about 2.6% of the US population – age 18 and older – are affected by bipolar disorder every year. With Mental Health Awareness Week coming up October 10-16, this is a excellent time to become more aware and informed on the facts/myths of all types of mental illness.
The new bestseller, The Other Side of Bipolar – Revealing Your Strengths to Move Beyond the Diagnosis by Lauren Polly is a unique combination of memoir and self-help book that reexamines the definitions of mental illness as a debilitating disease and considers another possibility: What if instead of a wrongness, these symptoms point to capacities that are not yet fully understood? What if being bipolar or mentally ill is a sign that a person has intelligences that others do not understand?
Throughout this poetic story are examples of tools and techniques that can be applied immediately to start creating a sense of peace and possibility in one’s life. Polly’s story will captivate and show the readers a path to finding peace and joy with being different, and finally showing how to utilize their differences to shift from surviving in this world to thriving and creating a satisfying life for themselves.
Through Polly’s new perspective, people can be empowered to go beyond any diagnosis or label that they have been given and start to explore the uniqueness and beauty of who they truly are. People with bipolar disorder or mental illness do not need to live a small, safe existence. They can go after their dreams, challenge themselves and create a life far beyond what they may have thought possible.
“This book will give hope to those that feel hopeless and shine a light into the dark of how being different is difficult and made wrong. Hope does exist.” ~ Gary Douglas, Author of The Place
