Living with bipolar and other types of mental illness is a lifetime journey. Author and public speaker, Ann Kochenberger, has learned to manage her disease and find quality of life beyond each painful episode. She has made a commitment to share her experiences with others to help them find personal fulfillment in their lives despite bouts of depression and other difficult challenges that come with coping with mental illness.
Ann’s book Out of Focus…Again has received numerous awards in the categories of inspirational, mental illness and memoir at both the state and national levels.
Ann and her husband, Gary, share two different points of view when speaking to organizations and at conferences – from that of patient as well as from the perspective of caregiver/companion. The first two of their proposed series of e-books can be purchased on this website.
