Bring Me to Light
Embracing my Bipolar and Social Anxiety
Eleanor Segall’s life was just beginning. An aspiring actress and a family girl, she never thought her future would be derailed by mental illness. After a spate of depressive episodes, panic attacks, and social anxiety, Eleanor found herself in The Priory at age 16. The diagnosis? Bipolar Affective Disorder.
But Eleanor didn’t let it stop her for long. Now a successful blogger, journalist, and pillar of the mental health and Jewish communities, she writes about finding recovery and hope after being unwell. Her story is of picking herself back up again and surviving against the odds.
Bring me to Light will resonate with many, and can act as a helpful tool for others to find their light in the darkness, too.
