Since the release of her book, Escaping the Rabbit Hole: my journey through depression, Tracey Maxfield has become a staunch advocate for Mental Illness and Mental Health Awareness and Bullying and completed the course, Bringing Mental Health to Schools. She has met with teenagers ages 11 to 15 years to talk about bullying and mental illness and has appeared on numerous podcasts, live radio shows and ABC KOMO News 4, KSHV 45, and NBC News 6 television shows. In June, Tracey was featured in a series of articles by HelloCare magazine in Australia.
In September, Tracey embarked on a new life journey: she sold her home, donated most of her possessions to various charities and made a commitment to try and make a difference in the world and is spending six months traveling in the USA, talking about mental illness and bullying in children and teenagers. Her philosophy is to Engage children and teenagers, to Educate them about mental illness and bullying and to Empower them to develop confidence and skills to continue to move ahead in their own life journey.
Kara and I have read the book Escaping the Rabbit Hole: my journey through depression, and it is excellent. I highly recommend you buy and read it, if you or anyone you care about is suffering, or has suffered, from depression. It’s now available in paperback, Kindle and audiobook. Here’s the link:
