lyonsThe world needs more people like Nicole Lyons. She’s been a tireless mental health advocate and volunteer to help in the battle to educate the public about mental illness. She lives with bipolar disorder and speaks regularly on the topic of how to help better fund mental health care and suicide prevention.

As she says: “A diagnosis of mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, but an opportunity to live better, healthier and happier, by educating yourself, understanding your illness, and finding your way to wellness.”

I’m proud and honored to welcome her to her new blog, Embracing Balance, which will cover how to live better with a mental illness. Please give her a warm Psych Central welcome!
