Arizona, 2006. Amy Gamble thought her years as an athlete had prepared her for anything. After competing in the ’88 Olympic games in Seoul and transitioning into a rewarding business career, the forty-one-year-old professional never dreamed she harbored a traumatic past. So she was blindsided by flashbacks to a teenage assault and horrified that instead of receiving help for her psychotic episode, the police pushed her face-first into the dirt and handcuffed her.

 

Striving to recover with the aid of a therapist, Amy struggled with an escalating onslaught of invasive memories. But after getting lost in the forest during a second psychotic break and nearly dying, the frostbitten and hypothermic woman finally found a path to healing.

Gamble shares her powerful journey to take back her future and of how she came to be a mental health advocate educating others about mental health conditions  As she reveals her battles with PTSD and bipolar disorder, you’ll come to appreciate not only the strength of the human spirit, but that there is hope and triumph for those afflicted with mental health issues.
