PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Kevin Mannix, beloved and former weatherman for NEWS CENTER, has embarked on a new adventure with his social worker wife, Linda.
Kevin, who has been with NEWS CENTER since 1989, found a passion for talking about everyday struggles and shame when he worked on a segment for TV named 'Kevin's Story,' a series that highlights the shame associated with mental health issues.
After Kevin and Linda saw how well received the segment was and after someone suggested the idea, they knew they wanted to write a book. Now, the two are back on NEWS CENTER to announce "Weathering Shame."
The book discusses their personal journey with mental health issues and the shame and stigma that comes with it. "Weathering Shame" is a story of their personal experiences surrounding growing up in a home with parental mental illness and alcoholism.
