Normal by Whose Standards?
Debunking Myths that Surround Mental Illness
About the Book
Tyeisha Brewer-Fields grew up wanting so badly to be normal.
It took her time to accept that she is not normal—and even longer to embrace that that’s OK. When she finally did, she began thinking about why society makes anyone who does not fit into a neat little box feel so bad.
In this book, she shares her struggles as well as her belief that God loves us all and made us in His image. She also points out that He gave us His son, Jesus Christ, so that we all may have eternal life. God made this sacrifice for all of us, including those that don’t fit the definition of “normal.” No matter what the author has had to go through, reminding herself that God loves her has allowed her to overcome challenges—and they can help you, too.
Too many people continue to suffer from a mental disorder in silence because society has turned a blind eye to their problems. Join the author as she shares her personal story of overcoming the obstacles and debunking the myths that surround mental illness.
