“Patricia Deegan’s amazing story”

Video Link

This YouTube video was uploaded on August 8, 2013, but I’m not clear about who uploaded it.  The description which appears to be Hebrew translates to “A fascinating lecture from a woman patient with schizophrenia who is also Dr. psychology.” when I run it through Google Translate.  The video itself is in English though, and is of Pat Deegan discussing her story of being diagnosed with Schizophrenia in contrast to what the mental health system often offers people with mental illnesses and includes suggestions she has for how to change or improve the system.
