Bloodlines: A Memoir of Self-Harm and Healing Generational Trauma
Book Description
Up to 18 percent of US teens engage in non-suicidal self-injury—a number that fails to capture the devastating consequences of mental health diagnoses on families, particularly mothers like Tracey Yokas. When Tracey, who is already engaged with her own struggles with familial patterns, realizes that her teenage daughter, Amelia, has fallen prey to depression and disordered eating, she discovers that the key to helping Amelia is hidden inside her own transformation.
Author bio
Tracey Yokas creates stuff. When she isn’t writing about mental health and wellness, she can be found playing with paint, glitter, and glue. Art fuels her passion for connection. She shares about her family’s journey with mental illness so others will know they are not alone and that hope is real. She is dedicated to supporting women in the journey towards authenticity, and fulfills her mission by creating safe spaces where art, words, and vulnerability meet in a dynamic, supportive community. Tracey earned her master’s degree in counseling psychology from California Lutheran University and lives in Newbury Park, CA, with her family, cats, and fish.
