Honored that NAMI has Reviewed My Book, A Mother's Climb Out of Darkness

February 6, 2015

Thank you, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), for recently reviewing my book, A Mother’s Climb Out of Darkness.  I am truly honored.  I have provided an excerpt and link to the entire review below:

In America, after a woman goes through childbirth, there is often a strong focus on her physical well-being, but the state of her mental and emotional health may be overlooked. In light of recovering physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, Jennifer Hentz Moyer shares her experience with post-partum psychosis in her memoir A Mother’s Climb Out of Darkness. – See More

If you haven’t had a chance to read my book, I hope you will consider doing so as I have been receiving encouraging feedback from those that have read it.

NAMI First Episode of Psychosis Survey Results

The National Alliance of Mental Illness survey results are in and for those that have experienced psychosis, the most shocking finding is that the majority of individuals found no one was helpful when they first experienced psychosis.  I believe this shows the isolation, stigma and lack of understanding of psychosis.  How can we change this?  In my opinion, more individuals need to talk openly about their experience as well as the medical community better understanding of how to treat all aspects of the individual.  Complete treatment includes treating a person’s mind, body, and spirit.  What do you think can change this?
