On this week’s Thursday with NAMI, John Kline (pen name John Towns) of Wake Forest, NC shares his tumultuous story about life with bipolar disorder. As an ambulance EMT Chief/Paramedic, the author responded to a stream of chaotic inner city calls which led to him having Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. From intense, schizophrenia-type symptoms to periods of peaceful remission, John kept putting one foot in front of the other. In Heart of Rescue he gives an entertaining and poignant account of 50+ years with multiple jobs, misadventures, mistakes – and insight. Join us as he shares strategies and tips to cope with mental health issues.
