Join Dr. Duckworth with guest experts Andrea Landry, Nikki Rashes and Elisa Norman as they share their journey of building a life in recovery with mental health conditions. Discover how their story became a part of a best-selling book of 2022 and a part of NAMI history.

Learn how this comprehensive guide, including stories from over 130 people with mental illness and caregivers, became a huge inspiration and success.
