Book Review: “You’re Going to be Fine” by Brittney D. Herz

I can’t express how honored I was to read this review. My Bipolar Mind has been a great resource for me and I appreciate the time Samantha put into reading my book and expressing her opinion on it. It’s still somewhat surreal to read messages from people reaching out to me, or reviews like this, and knowing that our story is resonating with so many people.
You’re Going to be Fine is still available on Amazon.com.

Book Review: “You’re Going to be Fine” by Britteny D. Herz


You’re Going to be Fine, by author Brittney D. Herz, is a captivating and heart-wrenching true story about juvenile mental health and the impact it can have on the child as well as their parents and loved ones. While the author, Brittney D.

It’s Easy to Feel Alone

It's Easy To Feel Alone  The HIE Help Center site is a great resource for parents with children who have mental illness or delays. While they specialize in articles about HIE (hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy), the information and coping help can be used for multiple disorders. I had this article published in June 2018.
