From Shadows to Light is a compilation of the voices of 11 co-authors who courageously share their own mental health journeys, challenging stigma by speaking out.
Each author shares about their personal initiation of mental health challenges, the lessons they learned, and alternative approaches to recovery and maintaining their well-being.
Come join us through the visionary pages of From Shadows to Light, where you will be taken through topics such as nutrition and brain-gut health, trauma and PTSD recovery, workplace psychological safety, mental health advocacy and the wisdom of a multidisciplinary “whole human” approach to mental wellness that considers the mind, body, emotions and spirit of the individual.
