Melissa Bernstein is the mother of six and the co-founder and chief creative officer of the toy company Melissa & Doug. Behind this outward success is a truth Melissa has rarely divulged — she has suffered her entire life with existential anxiety and depression. Her new book, LifeLines, is her journey about how she has found purpose, peace, and meaning. LifeLines is an essential read and tool for right now as millions of people are struggling with mental health issues. The prolonged global pandemic, lockdowns, deprivations, and lifestyle changes of the past year have exacerbated this crisis.
