Liz Wilson

Liz was diagnosed as Bipolar Disorder I, NOS during college in 1996.  As a Psychology/Women’s Studies major, she was relieved and intrigued by her diagnosis, but not surprised. Both her siblings and Mother were also diagnosed Type I or Type II Bipolar Disorder. During 1998 their family all partook in a genetics study done on blood relatives with a high prevalence of Bipolar Disorder diagnoses. Liz graduated from Western Kentucky University in 1999, with Honors; magna cum laude and has served numerous roles in the Recovery Community, including CEO of a Consumer-run drop in center in central Ohio. She obtained her Peer Support Specialist certification in 2016. Liz is now a full time writer and recovery advocate.
