A Guide to Thriving with Mental Illness: by Mequell W. Buck

One in four adults--approximately 61.5 million Americans--experiences mental illness in a given year. However, those suffering from mental illness often feel isolated and alone. They struggle to find resources that will really help them. Mequell Buck has developed a reputation for being the go-to girl for questions about mental illness. She has struggled with bipolar disorder for many years. Over time, she has learned not only how to survive and manage her mental illness but also how to thrive and live happy. In her new book Mequell gives practical and real life tips as well as motivation to those in the trenches battling mental illness.

A Guide to Thriving with Mental Illness by Mequell Buck is not just a book, it is a map to happiness and meaningful life for those with mental illness. One of the keys to thriving with mental illness is being able to connect with others with similar experiences. “We have to be able to talk openly about mental health and mental illness without the stigma and shame that people often feel because of their struggles.” This book promotes open and honest discussion about the challenges of mental illness. “My goal is to show people that they can achieve their potential and lead happy and fulfilled lives -- not despite of mental illness -- but because of mental illness.” Mequell teaches people how to turn mental illness from a liability into an asset. “Too many people are demoralized by their diagnosis and the initial struggle to stabilize. And too many people give up when their success and happiness is just around the corner.” This book is a must-read for those struggling with any type of mental illness.

This book also speaks to family and friends of those struggling with mental illness and helps them understand how they can help. “Family and friends need to be educated about mental illness. If they aren’t, they can inadvertently say or do things that worsen the situation rather than help.”

About the Author: Mequell W. Buck lives in Queen Creek, Arizona with her husband and three teenage kids. She can be found cliff jumping, coaching her son’s wrestling team, going on grand adventures with her family or riding her road bike really fast down big hills.
