Mariel Hemingway, granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway, strives for a greater understanding of her family history of suicide and mental illness. As tragedies are explored and deeply hidden secrets are revealed, Mariel searches for a way to overcome a similar fate.
Watch: Mariel and Bobby on "Super Soul Sunday"
Mental illness is overwhelmingly misunderstood and creates fear for so many. I'm hoping Running From Crazy gives people permission to share their stories and know that they are not alone. Perhaps by sharing my life with others they will feel supported in speaking out and getting help.
For me, it's a moving and powerful story that offers up hope and the sense that none of us are alone in our struggles.
