The JFS Behavioral Health Committee invites you for our annual Luncheon in support of Mental Health Awareness. Linea Johnson’s sudden shifts from happy, well-adjusted teenage daughter to depressed and hopeless college student became a roller coaster ride for her and her family. Facing her worst fears for her child and nagging doubts about her own decisions, Cinda vigilantly guarded over her daughter. Through electroshock therapy, depression, mania, cutting, bulimia, drug and alcohol use, and endless struggles with the wrong medications, it was ultimately their trust and shared truths that helped Linea get her life back. Cinda and Linea’s inspiring journey breaks through the stigma of what it means to have bipolar disorder, and, more importantly, what it takes to live with it. Their story reaches beyond the personal to the universal state of mental health today and the shortcomings of our healthcare system.
