In the interest of helping to promote a healthy community, DBSA Tampa Bay (the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance of Tampa Bay) sponsors regular free Mental Health Lectures; and the topic of discussion at the June meeting was how to recover from bipolar illness.
For the June 20 talk, the guest lecturer was Michael Rose, M.A., author of the new book, Bipolar Wellness: How to Recover from Bipolar Illness. Rose is a master’s-level teaching psychologist teaching at several colleges, as well as a board member/administrator at a peer-staffed psychiatric recovery and support facility. He is also a professional life coach specializing in bipolar recovery and a licensed nutrition counselor in Florida, who develops products in the health food industry.
During his talk, Rose shared intimate details about his personal journey from bipolar illness to bipolar wellness, and offered practical advice on the role exercise, organization skills, support groups, addictions, medication, therapy, creativity and self-esteem have played in his recovery. The meeting was held at St. Joseph’s Women’s Hospital in Tampa, and previewed on WFLA Radio and Great 38 on WFLA-TV in Tampa in the morning, and on WMNF 88.5 FM Community Radio in the afternoon.
Twin Cities author Judy McConnell signed copies of her debut novel, Dreamhouse, at the Barnes and Noble Booksellers store in Roseville., Minn on June 16. In Dreamhouse, McConnell writes about events she personally experienced during the feminist movement in the 1960s and 70s as seen through the eyes of Radley Gallagher, a young mother caught up in the challenges of raising two young children. “The story is about how that cultural phenomenon impacted this conventional young family in Deephaven, MN. In some ways, the story parallels my life. I lived in that house in Deephaven,” says McConnell, who goes on to describe Dreamhouse as a stark portrayal of the soul-searching dilemma facing a young wife and mother as she confronts head-on the revolutionary changes of the early seventies.
McConnell's book tour for Dreamhouse kicked off on Feb. 10 at the Walker Library in Minneapolis. On Feb. 21, she appeared at Common Good Books in St. Paul. on Mar. 7 she was at Subtext Bookstore, also in St. Paul; and on Mar. 24 she participated in the Rosemount Writers Festival and Book Fair in Rosemount, Minn.
Articles about the book tour have appeared in the Lakeshore Weekly and MN Sun Sailor. St. Louis Park's City South Magazine is also working on a story to be published soon. For more information, go to the author’s website, www.agreatbook.net.
Unless you or someone you love have been directly affected by mental illness, drug abuse or alcohol addiction, you probably don’t know what’s really involved in recovery; but because it affects so many people, it’s probably time to learn.
As part of its continuing mission to provide resources for men seeking to grow in body, mind and spirit, the Men’s Center of Minneapolis hosted a discussion on recovery the evening of June 19. The guest speaker was Bruce Ario, who has been in recovery since 1979. He shared his story to shed light on recovery in general and more universal terms. Bruce is the author of 2 somewhat autobiographical novels on recovery.
