Book Review – “The ABCs of Recovery from Mental Illness”
When I was working, I had the pleasure of meeting Carol Kivler through the National Speaker’s Association in Philadelphia. We attended some events together, and she is very interesting to know!
A wonderful mutual friend asked me to review her new book on my blog, and I am happy to do it.
The book is easy to read, and meant to give you easy to remember tips. Using the Mnemonics system of the ABC’s, Carol gives us 26 points to remember. Each point is a nice summary of an activity or idea that will help us to keep long term recovery. She tells her personal story, and then gives examples of how she uses each point in her life.
Since meeting Carol, I became disabled and diagnosed with BiPolar Disorder with Depression. I found each point to be helpful and meaningful on many levels,
The 15th is the launch of her book, and sales generate a nice donation to NAMI Mercer. http://bit.ly/ABCLaunch
NAMI is the National Association of Mental Illness. This chapter is in Mercer County, NJ where Carol lives.
You will be happy that you bought this book for yourself or for someone that you love!
