Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"When Mark Henick was a teenager in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, he was tortured by depression and anxiety and almost took his own life. One night, he stood on the bridge of an overpass, clinging to a girder in the wind. One person shouted to him, 'Jump, you coward!' Another man, a random stranger in a brown coat, talked to him quietly, calmly and with deep empathy. Just as Henick's feet touched open air, the man in the brown coat encircled his chest and pulled him to safety. This near-death experience changed Henick's life forever. So-Called Normal is the story of Henick's life growing up in Cape Breton and the events leading to that fateful night on the bridge. This memoir is a vivid and personal account of Henick's failing mental health in childhood and his subsequent journey toward healing and recovery in his teens and early twenties." --Provided by publisher.
