A Parent's Journey Raising Children with Mental Illness

Jan Stewart’s book is an intimate account of raising two children with mental illnesses. It describes, from a parent’s point of view, the rollercoaster journey from hope to terror, and back again, as the children go to school and grow up to be young adults with jobs. It has not been easy. Stewart, a corporate executive, tells how she and her husband struggled to raise the children, find the right professional help, schools, jobs, and housing. She talks frankly about the toll it has taken on her marriage, her family, and social life, and she offers invaluable advice, from the voice of deep experience, to parents of children with mental illnesses.
