Author Reading Highlights Mental Health Awareness Month

Jeff Zuckerman author of “Unglued: A Bipolar Love Story

COOK COUNTY, MINNESOTA  ~~~~~~   May 6, 2021   (LSN)  Cook County Public Health & Human Services recently announced a virtual event with Jeff Zuckerman, author of “Unglued: A Bipolar Love Story,” in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month. 

This free event, titled “Sharing a Lived Experience of Resiliency and Hope,” will include readings from Zuckerman’s book — a candid, funny, and refreshingly irreverent portrayal of the role a spouse takes in loving a partner with a mental illness. Intimate and ultimately hopeful, Zuckerman’s story chronicles the power of compassion, faith and resilience in the survival of a marriage and a caregiver's own well-being. 

“We invited Jeff to speak because of his open and honest approach to discussing mental health struggles — the difficulties of those experiencing mental health symptoms and those that support them on the journey to recovery,” said Grace Bushard, Cook County Children and Family Services Supervisor. “His work to destigmatize mental illness is important for all of us to hear.”

  • What: Mental Health Awareness Month: Sharing a Lived Experience of Resiliency and Hope 
  • When: 6-7:30 p.m., May 19  
  • Where: Virtual via Zoom
