43 – Mental Illness Did Not Defeat Me With Tina Collins

POSTED BY Hamish 10/04/2018 IN Podcast | No Comments

Mental Illness engulfed the life of Tina Collins from when she was a child.

For twenty years she walked through the world in an hallucinatory state.

When everything became too much to deal with, she withdrew entirely.

Prior to effective treatment Tina was diagnosed with Shizoaffective Disorder at a level that should have seen her institutionalized.

After years of medication and therapy she recovered and started living again.

3 Key Points

1/ Persist: If you are the patient, to their medical team or family, don’t give up ever.

2/ Speak. In silence the illness festers and stigma remains.

3/ Educate. Understanding sets us free.
