Author of a memoir about psychiatric hospitalizations and her faith, Katie Dale is no stranger to the storms of serious mental illness. She advocates online at KatieRDale.com for Serious Brain Disorders, blogging, speaking, and sharing her story with others wherever she can. When she’s not doing that, she’s getting creative in her freelance business. She’s mom to one child on earth and one in heaven, wife to her hero in uniform, and currently resides in Florida.
“Whether you are a person caring for a loved one that has a mental illness, or a person who struggles with their own mental health condition, or both, my mission is this:
To bring to light the many aspects of those pieces of life that we don’t yet have the answers to, or have found answers to and want to share! There is hope. Let’s be bold and brave. And real.”
