Perfect Chaos, A Daughter's Struggle to Survive Bipolar and a Mother's Journey to Save Her, was released May 8, 2012! Thank you to St. Martin's Press for the beautiful work on our book! We are a daughter (Linea) and mother (Cinda) with a shared purpose of building hope and ending the stigma for those struggling with mental health conditions. We have written a book together of our journey with mental illness. It is the inside story of Linea's struggle through the diagnosis, treatment and acceptance of bipolar disorder and Cinda and her families' pain, love and pride for their daughter in this fierce fight. We have learned so much from this journey and we hope that by sharing our experiences with honesty and compassion we can provide insight, information and hope for others in this battle. We want to provide information and insight to teachers, counselors and health professionals in their work and mostly to the brave people and their families who struggle with mental health conditions every day.
