This was Part 2 of the TED Radio Hour episode The Unquiet Mind from last weekend. In this TED Talk she speaks about her experience with schizophrenia and recovery. She is pro-psychopharmacology, which may be a trigger for some followers of this blog. In her case the medications seem to be helping her live an essentially normal life.
Moreover, she is a mental health law scholar and writer, she speaks for the rights of mentally ill people - she works to protect the rights and dignity of the mentally ill.
Her autobiography is The Center Cannot Hold: My Journey Through Madness (2007).
