Resilience In Real Life
No industry is immune and no occupation is safe. All of us need to begin to think in terms of our own inner strengths, our resilience and resourcefulness, our capacity to adapt and to rely upon ourselves and our families.
~ Steven Pressfield

Our Next CoreBrain Journal Episode
243 Linda Naomi Baron-Katz was raised as a modern orthodox Jew, however, mental illness presented an increasingly challenging set of variables throughout her life. It started with her mother when she was in the fifth grade. Her mother suffered a nervous breakdown and was first diagnosed with acute depression. This regression gave Linda and her family a huge amount of stress. As she was growing up into adulthood, her mother’s illness affected her in ways that she feared she too would become a seriously depressed person. In that challenging life context, Linda found difficulties making friends, developing positive relationships, and maintaining employment. After she graduated college, she also suffered from a mental illness and was ultimately diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
Through the years she was faced with challenges that were difficult to overcome but worked hard to achieve recovery. As part of her recovery from mental illness, she became active and volunteered for a variety of mental health organizations. Linda became a member of NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness or formerly called National Alliance for the Mentally Ill) and published articles about her life in New York City Voices, a newspaper for people with mental illness to share their personal recovery stories. Both of these agencies helped fight against stigma and other issues pertaining to mental illness.
Today, Linda is happily married, a Certified Peer Specialist under Ohel’s Mental Health Crisis Respite Program, and is an author who has published a book titled Surviving Mental Illness, My Story which won a Silver Medal Award by Readers Favorite for best non-fiction/autobiography and came in First Place and won the Life Journeys Award for best memoir/biography from Readers Views. Through this book, she describes all of her challenges that she dealt with while having a mental illness and how she found her way back towards establishing a wellness by staying mentally and physically strong.
