SEAVIEW - Judy Eron wrote the book "What Goes UP" after her psychologist husband Jim stopped taking lithium, began a year-long manic episode and ended his life in 1997.
Judy Eron is a clinical social worker, in practice since 1978, and also a gifted singer-songwriter who has shared her songs in national professional settings.
Eron is staying on Long Beach Peninsula for a part of this summer, and has agreed to talk about her experience of living with a loved one with bipolar disorder. The free program is at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 13, at the Peninsula Church Center, 5000 N St. in Seaview, one block east of Pacific Avenue Route 103.
Before Eron's presentation, at 6:30 p.m., the south Pacific mental health advocacy group will have a brief business meeting in preparation for developing a local NAMI affiliate.
Copies of "What Goes UP" will be available at the Wednesday evening program. A separate book signing will be announced later.
