Men Who experienced life with a parent with mental illness
Hi - This is an amazing website! Wish we had something equivalent in the U.S. I am writing a book called Sons of Madness, based on interviews with men who grew up with either a mentally ill mother or father . It is under contract to be published next year.
I have previously published a book called Daughters of Madness, based on my own personal experience as well as interviews with a number of women who grew up with mentally ill mothers.
I am still interviewing and would love to be in contact with any men on this site who would be willing to share their story with me. (Confidentiality will be fully protected by changing names and identifying details) It's so very important to bring these stories out into the light of day, so that we begin to lessen the sense of shame, isolation and stigma that goes along with having a mentally ill parent.
Any men who would be interested in sharing their story can contact me at my email address and I'd be glad to answer questions, etc.
Thanks Susan N
