Bethany Yeiser is a motivational speaker, writer, and advocate for the mentally ill. She was diagnosed with treatment-resistant schizophrenia in 2007, after being homeless for four years, and made an unexpected and full recovery in 2008. She earned a bachelor’s degree in molecular biology with honors from the University of Cincinnati in 2011. Her book Mind Estranged: My Journey from Schizophrenia and Homelessness to Recovery was published in 2014.

Please join us for a unique interview on Mental Health News Radio. Bethany is generous with sharing her journey and tremendously inspiring. Her book is equally forthcoming. Our on staff clinicians at Mental Health News Radio have worked with many patients dealing with schizophrenia so it was a pleasure to interview someone offering facts and insight towards a road to recovery.
