About the Series

Ginger Zee is a daughter, wife, mother, and the chief meteorologist at Good Morning America and ABC News. So, she predicts weather for a living. However, according to her New York Times bestselling book, it hasn’t been as easy to predict her mental health journey. Her memoir “Natural Disaster: I Cover Them, I Am One,” details her unexpected swings into what she calls “a black hole of depression.” After overcoming an abusive relationship and admitting herself to a psychiatric hospital, Ginger is successfully managing her own mental health.

“I watch Ginger on Good Morning America almost every day! It was so fun to see her this real. I had no idea what she had gone through. Absolutely eye-opening for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the series!”
