Living Crazy: Finding Happiness and Success with Mental Illness

Kirsten Hale is a featured human book at our upcoming Human Library event on May 31st. Her life's human book title is "Living Crazy: Finding Happiness and Success with Mental Illness." Her story is a happy one with lots of challenges. She is an incest survivor and comes from a family wrought with neglect and emotional, verbal, and physical violence. Up until only 5 years ago, her life was mostly about survival. Then she started to look for the right help that she really needed. Kirsten has Complex PTSD and Dissociative Identity Disorder. In her own words, "I am totally nuts!" However, she has learned some key lessons and realizations that mental health and wellness are a spectrum that everyone goes through in some way.

Hear more of her story and life lessons personally by checking her out for 15-20 minutes at the Human Library event on Saturday, May 31st from 1-4pm at the Long Beach Main Public Library, 101 Pacific Avenue, Long Beach, CA 90802.
