Successful and Schizophrenic

A moving account by Elyn R. Saks of building a successful and creative life while experiencing schizophrenia. After a hospitalisation at the age of 28 she was advised that because of her diagnosis she would never lead an independent life. She has since become Associate Dean and Orrin B. Evans Professor of Law, Psychology, and Psychiatry and the Behavioral Sciences at the University of Southern California Gould Law School.

  1. I have her book but haven’t read it yet.

    I really like what she said in the article about accepting her diagnosis but not her prognosis. Brilliant!

    Thank you for sharing this Geoff.
