Finding Color in the Darkness: Losing My Son to Bipolar Disorder with Margaret Thompson

Margaret Thompson’s Finding Color in the Darkness is a report from the front lines of the battle against mental health disorders. Her son, John Fish, is a bright young boy growing up in an average American town, going to school, playing with his brother and walking his dogs on the beach each day.

He grows into adolescence and slowly a dark sky seems to settle over him; he is complicated, sensitive and growing more silent every day. His mother knows a disaster is looming but her attempts to reach her son go unrecognized and this page-turning memoir reaches its devastating conclusion. Too late, John is enveloped in a love he seemed never able to reach as his family and friends gather to say their goodbyes.

Margaret Thompson began her career in New York City at MTV. She married and left to raise her two boys, Tim and John, ultimately finding the calling of her life, teaching. Since the loss of her son, John, to suicide, she has dedicated herself to educating others about the importance of focusing on mental health as a medical, and potentially fatal, condition.
