The Impact of an emtional high
Author Jen Kraakevik takes readers on her whole-hearted, beautifully messy journey to make sense of bipolar disorder in her book, The Impact of an Emotional High: How to Talk about Bipolar Disorder with Your Family. Learn from her deeply personal discoveries how she learned to talk about her father’s diagnosis with her family. She reveals her struggles, emotions, and the unhelpful thought patterns and viewpoints that colored her lived experiences to inspire and connect with others who have family members diagnosed with bipolar disorder. She gently guides readers to learn how to talk with their own family by creating goals, deciding what to ask, allowing for grief, practicing new ways of communication, and knowing what to do when they don’t know what to do. The Impact of an Emotional High gives readers a chance to process, connect, and talk about bipolar disorder so they can come out of hiding and make necessary changes in their own lives.
