Reviews Elsewhere – Electroboy: A Memoir of Mania

From last year, but a review and profile of the author Andy Behrman appeared on the Every Day Health website.

“I knew if I didn’t get better, I would get worse,” he says, “and if I got worse, I would probably die.”

He spent two years trying to find the right medication with the help of a psychiatrist, but eventually underwent electroshock therapy. A nurse referred to him as “electroboy,” which became the title of his autobiography.

Today, the father of two has found the right combination of medications to curb the mania and has refocused his life toward helping others with mental illness.
