From a psychiatrist specialized in helping patients who struggle with depression and drug and alcohol abuse, comes the tremendous and heartbreaking memoir of a doctor who must reexamine the meaning of these same psychological diseases when they strike her own daughter. Now, rather than helping her patients learns the tools of coping and survival, Elsa must look inward and discover this kind of strength and courage within herself. As this brave author fights to employ all of her expertise, motherly love, and endless empathy, she is still left with facing the hardest questions a parent can ask. What do I say to reach my daughter? How do I help her? Can I help her?

Through the Unknowable is an intimate and fiercely honest look inside a family falling apart and a mother who never stops trying to pick up the pieces. This book is a must-read for anyone who knows how it feels to wander through the unknowable.

From the Author:


I woke one morning with the conviction that I must write everything I remembered of the years of my daughter’s adolescence, when depression wreaked havoc with her life. The fact that I had fully recovered from a suicide attempt in my youth, and that I made a living helping others do so, increased my empathy. This, however, didn’t allow me to take away her suffering.

Putting pen to paper brought back events and feelings I dreaded, yet I was compelled to continue and examine every aspect of our family life during those years. Writing this book has given me peace, and I greet most new days with curiosity and a smile.

-Elsa Campion, M.D.
