TEDGlobal 2012 Elyn Saks

to work and to love!

want to share my story to give insight

On a studying day in school

Had a bad experience

Asked if they had it too

Couldn't calm down in dorm room

was brought to the doctor

Been restrained a lot in the hospital

wanted to write about restrainment

Wanted to get off medication

started reduction of meds

Continued to refuse medication

Don't want to be put in hospitals again

Broke down

I'm here for 3 reasons

1 excellent therapy

2 many close family members and friends

3 work in enourmously supportive workplace

But even with everything above

we need to know more about it

stop criminalize it


Elyn Saks asks bold questions about how society treats people with mental illness.

I'm an chronic schizophrenic

now clear of hospitals for 3 decades

graduated from law school

Got helped by steve

docter who treats severe mental ilnesses

Was diagnosed badly

But now graduated



NOT split personality

presents itself in many forms
