About the Book

"Bipolar Disorder? No, it does not mean being ‘stark, raving mad’. It is a much misunderstood psychiatric illness that affects up to 4 percent of any adult population across the world. Just like diabetes, afflicted people can lead perfectly healthy and productive lives when the illness is treated effectively.

In this brave memoir, Geetanjali Mehta sets out to offer a message of hope and inspiration to people who suffer from bipolar disorder, as well as their families. Geetanjali was a successful engineer and manager, cruising along a terrific career that came crashing down when she was initially diagnosed. Her book, Crossing Over is a heart-rending, frank and fascinating insider’s look into the world of bipolar disorder. And no, it’s NOT a preachy collection of advice and experiences. It’s just what you need to understand this ailment and people who suffer from it.

This book skillfully holds a mirror to the effects of bipolar disorder on the mind, body and soul of the patient. Helpful information is accompanied with honest accounts of Geetanjali and her family’s struggles. It will help readers understand how bipolar disorder can be treated effectively with the help of medication, therapy, lifestyle adjustments with strong family support.

Crossing Over is the journey of Geetanjali and her family through chaos and despair to hope and happiness. Today, she herself leads a wonderful, stable life as a mom, writer and an active volunteer for many non-profits. This is a positive book. It’s a story of faith, courage and love… one that will help patients conquer bipolar disorder and lead stable, satisfying lives.

I can’t cure it
I can’t fully control it
I can definitely cope with."
