Every year, one in four American adults suffers from a diagnosable mental health disorder. In these true stories, writers and their loved ones struggle as their worlds are upended. What do you do when your father kills himself, or your mother is committed to a psych ward, or your daughter starts hearing voices telling her to harm herself--or when you yourself hear such voices? Addressing bipolar disorder, OCD, trichillomania, self-harm, PTSD, and other diagnoses, these stories vividly depict the difficulties and sorrows--and sometimes, too, the unexpected and surprising rewards--of living with mental illness.

its scuse me while I kiss the sky! Jimi Hendrix suffered mental illness just like a lot of people do. Suicide was his escape out of the hell he was put into. World famous but if you eat at the wrong restaurant they would hang you for being who you are which was black. Sorry times but they are still with us today.
