Helping Loved Ones of those Suffering from Behavioral Health Problems
The recently released “When the Shoe Drops” Kindle Book was written to help those who are struggling to come to terms with someone else’s mental health or substance abuse problems.
Entire families are affected when a loved one is struggling with mental health and/or substance abuse problems. Unfortunately, there are few resources in place for families to go to in order to learn how to help their loved one, while also keeping themselves and the rest of the family stable and healthy. Due to stigma, feelings of failure, shame and embarrassment, many are afraid to reach out for the support that is so desperately needed. Stress levels raise, chaos ensues and it can get overwhelming fast.
“When the Shoe Drops” is here to help. Author Tracy Morrow offers experience, strength, and hope in sharing her story while offering valuable information about where to find the resources you need for you, your loved one and the rest of your family during days of crisis. Rather than being a professional in the mental health or substance abuse fields, she is a wife and mother who has walked the path of loving family members in the grips of both mental illness and addiction and knows what it’s like from the most intimate level.
Tracy shares, “All you have to do is look around you at the news. Suicide, overdoses, increased crime rates, all types of havoc are happening from untreated behavioral health problems such as addiction, depression and anxiety, to name a few. It’s rampant, yet families are still falling by the wayside because there aren’t enough people talking about the problem or getting the word out about how there IS help.”
She continues, “No one is alone in these epidemic times. My wish is that When the Shoe Drops gets into the hands of those who need it most, so they can learn there is help available and can feel more comfortable in reaching out to get it.”
