Village Books Event

Bellingham County shares,

In her latest book, a memoir, Raging Currents: Mental Illness and Family, Nanette J. Davis delivers a heartrending, personal story of three generations of mental illness.

Raging Currents shows a variety of causes and effects of mental illness in a mother’s addiction, a sister’s schizophrenia, and a son’s bipolar disease.

“We stand at a tipping point as our nation focuses greater attention on mental health,” says spokesperson for National Alliance for Mental Health, Darcy E. Gruttadaro.

The mental health crisis for youth and young adults has skyrocketed and we need to begin tackling this elephant in the room. And this is why this book matters. A retired Professor of Sociology, Dr. Davis expertly crafts an emotional and painful picture of living with disturbed loved ones. Their relentless roller-coaster behavior overwhelmed family members, who confronted the harsh reality of tragic outcomes. The book concludes with contemporary approaches to healing mental illness.
