Born in response to his own struggles with manic-depressive illness, The Bright Side was founded by Shie Rozow in early 2002. Launched on
May 20th, 2002, The Bright Side’s award-winning website is an online community where people can find immediate solace and support when life is overwhelming. The site includes professional articles, personal stories, suggested reading, FAQs, a directory of 24/7 crisis intervention hotlines and much more.  It also touches on a wealth of topics including suicide, depression and related conditions, grief, stress, and a variety of mental disorders.

The Bright Side is constantly evolving and expanding to include new sections dealing with aspects of mental and emotional health. In the past six months the site has won nearly 30 awards, and has added over 200 hundred professional articles, as well as several new sections. The Bright Side is a volunteer-based organization, guided by five wonderful advisors including Mark Gorkin, LCSW - The Stress Doc™, Debra Moore, Ph.D., Allan N. Schwartz, CSW, Ph.D., Sherry Russell, and Dr. Barbara Becker Holstein, psychologist and originator of THE ENCHANTED SELF.

Dr. Holstein has taken her vision of psychological well-being and how to achieve a life of meaning and joy to the public and other clinicians for many years.  The energy behind her optimistic and hopeful psychological techniques stem from the unique name that she has given herself: ‘The Enchantress of Positive Psychology’. 

Dr. Holstein has been a psychologist in private practice since 1981.  Through the practice that she shares with her husband, Dr. Russell Holstein, they have created a long overdue shift in psychology by emphasizing “what's right with us, rather than what's wrong”.  She offers a new way of looking at your life ... your own 'enchanted self'.  Her goal is to inspire and encourage you to achieve your positive states of mind, body, and spirit. 

The Enchanted Self concepts stem from a culmination of over ten years of work and research in the field of personal enchantment by Dr. Holstein.  She teaches us how to recall positive memories, regardless of our history, recognize our potential, and bring into our lives more of what gives us pleasure and joy.  This is all combined with daily positive actions.
