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 currently resides in North Carolina where she is obtaining her Substance Abuse Counselor licensure and volunteering for IBPF.
