Book:Chase the rainbow, [one man's journey with mental health told by the woman who loved him]:2018 Book
Author: Bell, Poorna
Year: 2018
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2017 An honest yet uplifting account of a woman's life affected (but not defined) by the suicide of her husband and the deadly paradox of modern-day masculinity. Punk rocker, bird nerd and book lover Rob Bell had a full, happy life. He had a loving wife, a big-bottomed dog named Daisy and a career as a respected science journalist. But beneath the carefully cultivated air of machoism and the need to help other people, he struggled with mental health and a drug addiction that began as a means to self-medicate his illness. In 2015, he ended his life in New Zealand on a winter's night. But what happened? How did a middle-class Catholic boy from the suburbs, who had an ocean of people who loved him, and a brain the size of a planet, end up dying alone by his own hand?

Absolutely gut wrenching, a very difficult read but beautifully written.

Book:In search of silence:2021 Book
Author: Bell, Poorna
Year: 2021
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Simon & Schuster UK Ltd
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2019 In 2015 Poorna Bell became a widow after her husband Rob took his own life on a winter's night, having battled depression and addiction. Her situation was unusual when compared to a lot of people, but she was left figuring out exactly the same things. Will she ever be happy? Will she find love again? Who will rescue her from her sadness? Two years on and Poorna is rebuilding her life. And it is from this place - as she works towards choosing what she does and doesn't want from society, that she will explore a different conversation around fulfillment and self-worth. Cutting across the landscapes in India, New Zealand and Britain, Poorna Bell explores the things endemic in our society such as sadness and loneliness, to unpick why we seek other people to fix what's inside of us.
