Mind Bulb provides readers with information, strategies, and a common sense approach to dealing with mental health issues that stand in the way of people meeting and exceeding their potential. Topics include: possible stressors, triggers, familial relationships, life changes, and gaining or loss of fortune and fame.
The book is geared towards those individuals that are responsible for the well-being and success of professional athletes, celebrities, those in the public eye, and everyday people.
The author's intent is to de-stigmatize mental health issues and encourage openness and dialogue. Issues addressed in the book include: suicide, depression, promiscuity, violence, substance abuse, and isolation.
