About The Author
Yehonatan (Yoni) Palmer grew up in Golders Green, London, moving to Ramat Bet Shemesh, Israel, in 1998. Today he lives with his wife and daughter on a moshav just outside Ramat Bet Shemesh. He grew up in a home steeped in communal involvement, with his father, z”l, serving as a gabbai and communal leader, while his mother, z”l, also played significant roles in women’s groups in the local kehillah.
Yoni works in hi-tech as a technical writer, but outside work time is involved in communal activities, himself serving as a gabbai both on the moshav where he lives and during the time he lived in RBS. He is also a volunteer firefighter and took part in the Jerusalem area fire in August 2021.

Yoni Palmer has done what has needed to be done for ages. A riveting personal account of life with dperession and in the process has pounded down the walls of stigma that surround mental illness. This book will tug at your heart strings and hopefully open up the discussions that have been subdued for too long. Thank you to Mosaica Press, and of course to Yoni and his family for this raw and real-to-life encounter with a topic that so many of us deal with only in the secrecy of our own minds and lives. Truly a display of heroic courage and a genuine desire to help others find solace in sharing their pain.
