I am a Mental Health Recovery Coordinator who is passionate about his work, the community mind and teaching others what little I know. I can't post a picture because it won't fit. I teach interns, medical students and doctors about recovery from mental illness. You may believe that someone with schizophrenia may never get better but I know they can. It takes time and usually some type of medication. When the general community hears that dignosis it usually invokes a thought of violence, that's totally false, they are less violent than the general population. In under developed countries they are chained and beaten at times, this is not treatment and the individual suffers enough from the illness alone. I am part of a movement to spread the hope of recovery around the world. If you would like to see me speak on the subject go to www.choicesinrecovery.com and there will be a video series that contains six videos. I am in five of the videos being the person with schizophrenia. You see, I have had the illness for almost 30 years now, I wonder what you will think if you watch the videos.
An idea worth spreading
If you treat people better than they treat you they will likely improve.
I'm passionate about
Helping others heal their minds. People come to me naturally and have all my life to pose their particular dilema to me, I'm almost always able to help. I strongly believe we are here to serve.

My TED story
I have schizophrenia and am doing very well. I don't think I have ever seen the world through a common lense. I have blazed through parts of my mind where most of you can never go.Having this illness has taught me a lot about society and how we interact with each other. I find the general population sleeping and far to rigid. If I were to tell the average person of my illness the first things that come to their minds are, violence, confusion, the street people, shootings and shopping carts. I have never been violent, never lived on the streets nor pushed a shopping cart outside of a grocery store. If you have taken the time to read this I thank you, you have been educated a little more than you were before. I teach interns, Residents, Doctors, Agencies and people who have an illness about recovering from it. I think we are all in recovery from something, diverce, grief, abuse, loss and much much more.
