Join us next Thursday, January 12th for our first speaker event of Winter Quarter!
Sarah Fay (Ph.D., M.A., M.F.A.) will be speaking about her experience living with mental illness: her psychiatric experiences, diagnoses, stigmatization, and the recovery process. She emphasizes each person’s capability for full recovery and wellness. Recovery is possible.
Sarah Fay (Ph.D., M.A., M.F.A.) is a mental health advocate and the award-winning author of the journalistic memoir Pathological: The True Story of Six Misdiagnoses (HarperCollins), which was an Apple Best Books pick and which The New York Times hailed as a “fiery manifesto of a memoir.” Parade Magazine recently named it one of the sixteen best mental health memoirs to read. Sarah has shared her story on NPR’s 1A, Oprah Daily, Salon, WGN Morning News, NPR’s KERA/Think, The Rumpus, and in The Los Angeles Times and Forbes Women. Pathological was featured in Forbes, mindbodygreen, Thrive Global, Lit Hub, Psychology Today, and more. She writes for many publications, including The New York Times, The Atlantic, Time, and The Paris Review, where she was an advisory editor. She’s on the faculty at Northwestern University, the founder of Pathological: The Movement, and a Certified Mental Health Peer Recovery Specialist. For more, visit www.sarahfay.org.
