Sometimes adversity can be a blessing in disguise
This was certainly the case for Peter Bell.
A breakdown at the age of 38, resulted in him being admitted to hospital, where he finally found the help he needed.
Over many following months, Peter learned how to manage a newly diagnosed mental illness and live a more meaningful life.
He now refers to his breakdown as a ‘break through’.
In Stepping Out the Other Side, Peter describes his journey from illness to health with honesty and passion.
His vision is that his story will inspire others to seek help immediately if they are suffering.
Asking for help is not a weakness. It is the most courageous thing you can do.
Listen to a review with Simon Drew from the Practical Stoic podcast. Simon kindly provided an excellent foreword for the book.
