An autobiography of a woman who suffered and fully recovered from a mental illness. She has gone on to achieve a PhD, writing a doctoral dissertation titled "a Practical Theology of Mental Health: a critical conversation between theology, psychology, pastoral care and the voice of the witness". The book is a message of hope for all those who suffer an illness professionals call incurable. From depression to schizophrenia to bi-polar disorder to obsessive compulsive disorder, this book demonstrates that full recover from mental illness is not only possible, but inevitable if a genuine healing journey is undertaken. The one component missing from professional care in vital - tha component is the spiritual dimension. This is not a tradition, religious aspect, but the spirituality that is inherent in all human persons.

Emma Pierce was diagnosed with an 'incurable' mental illness (bi-polar disorder) in 1965. After 6 years under professional mental health care she found her way into a self-help organisation where her healing journey began. She has spent more than 30 years working at the coal-face in mental health care, running self and mutual help groups that helped other sufferers recover, helping them to regain their own trust in their own critical thinking skills. Emmma went on to acquire the academic credentials to add credibility to her approach to healing mental illness. She acquired her PhD in 2007 from the Australian Catholic University.
