One in five people suffers from some form of mental illness. It’s a struggle that’s scary, dangerous, and, above all, lonely. But it doesn’t have to be. 

In her new memoir, Resilience, Jessie Close, sister of actress Glenn Close, tells of her inspirational climb from the depths of addiction, mania, and depression caused by bipolar disorder. With unblinking courage and remarkable honesty, she shares the toll it took on her family and children, the horror of her life before treatment, and what it took to get her life back on track. Jessie’s story is the story of many, and it’s time the world heard it. 

Jessie Close is an ambassador for Bring Change 2 Mind, an anti-stigma campaign founded by her sister Glenn. In her speeches and readings, she brings her story and her newfound activism to audiences in hopes of changing the way we think about mental illness.
