The time has come for this groundbreaking book on Emotional Intelligence to arrive.  It challenges the status quo, and breaks the stigma that surrounds mental health.

You will step into a personal conversation with these 15 courageous authors who have uncovered their souls to give you hope.  Their stories may break your heart and steal the very breath from your lungs, but they will also inspire you to see that triumph over adversity is always possible.

"When it comes to business, relationships, and being truly happy, emotional intelligence is the secret sauce to everything that matters.  This book is a game-changer and inside these pages are invitations to witness what ‘doing the work’ looks like. May they inspire you to do the same."

~Beth Hanishewski

Master Coach. International Speaker. Igniter. 


The resilience of the human spirit shines throughout this book. Whether it’s grief, loss, depression, anxiety, illness, abuse, or any stressor affecting you or someone you love, these stories will take you by the hand and show you how to not just survive, but thrive.  You are not alone.

Canadian Mental Health Association

As the nation-wide leader and champion for mental health, Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA) helps people access the community resources they need to build resilience and support recovery from mental illness or addiction. We do this by building capacity, influencing policy, providing services and developing resources. Together we positively impact change, creating a community that supports mental health and reduces the stigma associated with mental illness. 

We believe everyone deserves to be mentally healthy and live in a healthy community. By offering community-based mental health education, services, and supports for children, youth, adults and seniors, CMHA Vancouver-Fraser contributes to the long-term health and wellbeing of our communities. 

We have three pillars of work: 

• Wellness and Community Inclusion – We walk alongside people living with mental illness. We support them in reaching their hopes and dreams and living full and contributing lives in their communities. 

• Early Intervention and Prevention – We increase young peoples’ mental health knowledge while helping them develop skills to maintain positive mental health and develop confidence to ask for help when they need it. 

• Mental Health Promotion – Mental health includes habits and behaviours that build positive mental health, social support networks that we can count on and that have a strong connection to our community. CMHA helps people with these aspects of living a mentally healthy life and reduces the stigma related to mental illness.
