Dr. Rachel Pruchno’s fiercely candid memoir tells the story of how mental illness threatened to destroy her own family. Not once, but twice.
[More than 11.4 million people in the U.S. experience a mental illness severe enough to cause problems in their daily lives. For every person experiencing mental illness, there are family members who suffer as well.]
Dr. Pruchno’s story began with her mother's episodes of crippling sadness and whirlwind activity. When she became a mother, she feared her daughter would follow in these footsteps. It was not until she came to terms with her own secrets that she truly understood the destructive and pervasive effects mental illness has on families.
Surrounded By Madness is transforming. It will empower families to stop hiding and start talking when mental illness strikes.
