We had a lovely book reading and group discussion about mental illness at the Maxwell Residence in Baie-D’Urfé. Thank you to the people who shared their personal stories and struggles! I hope to have many more discussion events like this one so that we can create a space where people can speak openly about their journeys and together we can break the stigma of mental illness.

We had a great book signing at Librairie Clio in Pointe-Claire on Saturday. Many thanks to everyone who came out to buy a copy of the book!

We had the official Mad Like Me Book Launch on June 28 at the Baie-D’Urfé library, and it was amazing! Thanks to the ~50 people who attended, local merchants for door prizes, Friends for Mental Health, and Karen Armstrong and the library for hosting. What a great event!

On Sunday 17 June 2018, my daughter Tami Hammond-Collins displayed her two paintings from the cover of Mad Like Me in a local art show. I spoke to many people – including young children who were fascinated by the expressions on the faces of the portraits – about bipolar, showed them my book, and invited them to the book launch on 28 June. A “pre-launch” event!



Stay tuned!
