Bebe Moore Campbell, writer and mental health advocate, suffered with a bipolar disorder and died of brain cancer last winter. In 2003 she wrote the award-winning children’s book Sometimes My Mommy Gets Angry. Narrated by a young girl, it shows how to understand a mother with mental illness and in particular, passionate bipolar mood swings.

It’s always sad when someone’s life is cut short, but at least Bebe was a writer and left us words to continue to grow. The book is available at Amazon with a five star rating; one reader reviews, it has a “very touching ending” as does the author’s legacy. Find it (and her novels) at a library near you.
