When a loved one with mental illness comes into contact with the law, trying to advocate for them can be an overwhelming and frustrating endeavor. Mental illness adds a layer of complexity to legal processes, and the justice system can be downright bewildering, even for the most well-intentioned. How can families find out if their loved one is being mistreated or ignored, and how can they make sense of their rights under various laws and regulations?

Offering information on everything from fair housing and employment rights to privacy, Linda Tashbook's new book, Family Guide to Mental Illness and the Law: A Practical Handbook, offers practical guidance for handling legal challenges and complicated circumstances affecting loved ones with mental illness.

Tashbook, a professor at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law, and a Senior Fulbright Scholar, translates complicated legal principles into plain English. She identifies documents, explains processes, and demonstrates communications techniques to use with government staff, lawyers, and mental health professionals.

If you are in Pittsburgh, plan to attend this free lecture at the Carnegie Library Lecture Hall on Thursday, December 6th at 6:00 p.m.

My client-friend Lenore Skenazy is speaking at Dreamworks next week...she has also spoken to working parents at Microsoft, Disney, Audi, Yale, JWT, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, ClifBars and at professional services and law firms worldwide. Many companies have reported that after employees hear Lenore's presentation they let go of a lot of the burdensome parenting guilt and calm down about parenting, which enables them to create a better work/life balance which, in turn, (surprise!) improves workplace performance! Lenore's approach to parenting, which gives kids some freedom to actually grow, allows parents to lean in to their own lives. Sheryl Sandberg enthusiastically embraces this idea and brought Lenore to speak to the other parents (and teachers) at her children's school.

But don't just take MY word for how brilliant, hilarious, and right Lenore Skenazy is. Read what event organizers say to me after the events:

“Lenore is A GODDAMNED ROCK STAR! Seriously, Janis Joplin at Monterey level!”
Nick Gillespie, Editor-in-Chief, Reason

“Lenore had the crowd eating out of her hand.”
Amy Draves, Visiting Speaker Manager, Microsoft

"Our audience literally did not want to leave." Katherine Carol, Director of the International Children's Festival

"One of the most talked-about lectures of the semester." Sandra Bishop, Assistant Director, Yale Child Study Center

"She had the audience rolling in laughter." Gary Kaatz, President/CEO Rockford Health System, Rockford, IL

"Just like Tina Fey!" The Wheeler Centre, Melbourne, Australia

Want to bring Lenore to your office, PTA, or conference? She's available in NYC, San Francisco, L.A., Boston, DC, Chicago, British Columbia, Toronto, London, Melbourne, Sydney, Jerusalem, Johannesburg, and elsewhere. PM me for details or email [email protected].

The Case for Free-Range Parenting

My client Lenore Skenazy @FreeRangeKids has started a movement so powerful it's changing our entire parenting discourse. This OpEd in today's New York Times doesn't even mention Lenore...and I gotta tell ya, that's fine with her publicist/agent because this is a campaign on behalf of American KIDS, not a "parenting expert"!!!!

Lenore speaks to schools, churches, synagogues, and corporations. She headlines conferences and events around the world and audiences RAVE. She's brilliant and hilarious. Contact me about bringing her to your event.

Why are Americans so afraid to give their kids room to roam?

Are you working on a book proposal? We can help! While agents and editors are looking for great content and talented storytellers, the marketing plan is a central focus of the book proposal.

Our team is comprised of publishing industry veterans who worked in-house at Simon & Schuster, HarperCollins and Random House. In fact, none of our client proposals go out without having been fully vetted by LeadingThinkers VP Christian Waters, who was, until recently, VP of Sales Planning for Random House.

Send us an email and let us know if you need help crafting your book proposal. You can reach us at [email protected] or [email protected].

Happy writing!
