Unbeknownst to her, he had been suffering with drug addiction for years, brought on by crippling depression. But what happened? How did a middle-class Catholic boy from the suburbs, who worked as a respected journalist and had a brain the size of a planet, end up dying alone by his own hand? How did it get this point? Poorna Bell did the only thing she knew how to in a crisis: she wrote. She wrote for herself, but she also wrote to Rob; an open letter which went on to be read by hundreds of thousands of people across the world when she bravely posted it on the Huffington Post. This is Poorna's story, not only of how she met the man of her dreams and fell in love, but also Rob's story and how secretly suffered with depression since childhood and has been battling addiction as a means to cope with the disease. Depression is the biggest killer of men under 45 and a staggering 1 in 4 of us will experience the disease at some point in our lives, but the stigma surrounding mental health means that millions still suffer in silence. Part memoir part zeitgeist exploration, Chase the Rainbow shares how Poorna Bell came through crisis and learned to live again.
