Neil Cole book launch of Stability in Mind

Stability in Mind by Neil Cole is a profoundly moving account of living with a mental illness.
This memoir is the story of the first politician in Australia to publicly admit to having a mental illness. Neil Cole was a lawyer, a Melbourne City Councillor and a Member of the Victorian Parliament. After only five years in parliament he was diagnosed with bipolar mood disorder and treated with lithium. The revelation, and the cathartic experience of this diagnosis, changed his life forever.
Free, no need to book.
