Inspirational Mental Health Talks Series #4 Catherine G Lucas – Healing Schizophrenia

When she was 20 years old, Catherine G Lucas ended up in a psychiatric hospital. She had the wisdom to work with a therapist and found that within her experiences lay an opportunity for healing. Gradually, with the help of her therapist, she learned how to take better care of herself.

Catherine went on to found the Spiritual Crisis Network, which offers a spiritual framework from which to view mental health crisis and provides resources for people in crisis.

In this brief extract of a talk, given at the Spiritual Crisis Network Conference in 2015, Catherine introduces Cathy Penney’s story.

Cathy Penney is a woman who was diagnosed with schizophrenia and with the help of a therapist, healed herself, without medication. This goes against the prevailing view that schizophrenia is a brain chemical imbalance that requires medication for life.
