Description

www.joanherrmann.com www.cyacyl.com Mary Jean Teachman thought she had lost everything after losing her 37-year-old son, Forrest, to suicide in 1995. Forrest had suffered from bipolar disorder since the age of 15, and consequently developed a drug addiction. After his death, guilt clung to Mary Jean like a dark cloud and she found herself in utter despair. Life had taken its toll and with nothing more to lose, she embarked on the long road to healing. Mary Jean’s account of her journey from unspeakable desolation to peace and acceptance will inspire anyone whose life had been touched by grief and hopelessness. A former runway and print model who appeared in Vogue, previous president of Groesback Investments and prior president of MIRA (Mental Illness Research Association), Mary Jean Teachman is a writer and speaker who sits on the board of the John E. Upledger Foundation, an International healthcare resource center. She’s active in numerous charities and has served as a chairperson for many charitable events. Mary Jean is the author of the book, Never Saying Goodbye.
