My Brother Adam

my brother adamThis book was written to educate children about schizophrenia. Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling brain disorder. According to Mental Health America, it affects about one percent of people worldwide. It knows no racial, cultural, or economic boundaries.

Schizophrenia may be one of the most misunderstood mental health diseases, but it is also  one of the most disabling. Media attention on mental health awareness has sparked conversation on this subject, but not necessarily an understanding about the illness. My Brother Adam takes readers on a journey through what life is like for Adam, narrated by his sister Carla. It is our hope that this book will encourage further discussion on schizophrenia and mental health in general. This book is for anyone who wants to learn more on this topic. We hope that we can begin to dismantle some of the stigma associated with schizophrenia; as we open minds and touch hearts with Adam’s story.
