Press Release ( - MONTEBELLO, Calif. - Aug 02, 2018 - “Bipolar Girl” is the inspiring story of one woman’s journey through mental health recovery. Her touching updated memoir demonstrates the true meaning of hope, resiliency, and faith.

Surrounded by violence, Maricela grew up in poverty in East Los Angeles. Raised by her widowed, traditional Mexican mother, she was the youngest of five siblings.

Maricela missed having a father and struggled with depression all her life. Her first suicide attempt was at 14. Afterward, she survived multiple suicide attempts by overdose. Living with mental illness propelled her to devote her life to helping others like herself, and today she works in the mental health field.

The author spent her twenties in and out of mental hospitals. She was in deep denial about having bipolar disorder. Accepting her mental illness was the hardest thing she has ever done. Mental health recovery came about through medication, therapy, support groups, prayer, emotional support from family and friends, and her emotional support dog, Gypsy Blue.

Once Maricela accepted her illness, life changed in a beautiful way. She was able to achieve her goals and embrace a fulfilling life, motivating her to write this newer edition of her moving book.
