Nicole Lyons

Patient Leader

I write my story so others don't feel so alone. I volunteer with a Canadian non profit with a strong focus on suicide awareness and prevention among children and teens. I write a column for Psych Central called, Embracing Balance' which focuses on living well with mental illness. I often write guest pieces for The Mighty, International Bipolar Foundation, and Feminine Collective, all which touch on my life with bipolar. In my free time I write poetry and prose that hit bipolar from a creative point of view.
