Change IS Possible - Dr. Annita Perez Sawyer
As a suicidal teenager, Sawyer was institutionalized, misdiagnosed, and suffered through 89 electroshock treatments before being transferred, labeled as "unimproved" The damage done has haunted her life. Discharged in 1966, after finally receiving proper psychiatric care, Sawyer kept her past secret and moved on to graduate from Yale University, raise two children, and become a respected Psychotherapist.... Her story is a cautionary tale of careless psychiatric diagnosis and treatment, both 50 years ago and today.  Most of all, it's a story of perseverance: pain, acceptance, healing, hope, and success. Hers is a unique voice for this generation,
shedding light on an often misunderstood illness.
