Sarah Martin is wife to Shane and mother to three beautiful but very different adult children, two cats, and a dog who thinks she’s human.
Despite being an experienced theatre nurse and part of an extended family of medical professionals, nothing could have prepared Sarah for navigating the health system after her daughter Alice began experiencing psychosis and later, bipolar disorder.
Dear Psychosis, is Sarah’s first book and describes not only the dramatic rescue of her unwell daughter from Turkey, but the ongoing impact of helping a loved one deal with mental illness.
Most of all, it is a story of recovery, hope and the power of family.
When not tackling the stigma and silence around mental illness, Sarah loves playing golf and making and baking sourdough bread.
