June 28, 2019 01:00 PM

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — At some point, one in every four people will face some sort of mental illness or disorder.

An upstate New York author, Jackie Cioffa, is one of them. 

She's sharing her journey to help others in a new book called "The Red Bench." It follows the international model's descent into mental illness and bipolar disorder and how she recovered after a nervous breakdown.

Cioffa is this week's Sunday profile on Rochester in Focus.

Her book is available to purchase on Amazon.
