Author, speaker and mental health advocate - Michelle Dickinson talks about how her childhood well prepared her for many things in life and though she possesses many quality traits it’s her resilience that has fueled her to succeed both professionally and personally.  And despite her challenging formative years as a child caregiver to her dear sweet mother that was bi-polar, Michelle remarkably persevered to make her life “normal”.   Hear Mark’s conversation with Michelle as she delves into her past and articulates what life was like in their household where she experienced fear, dread and elation and which she so eloquently expresses in her memoir, “Breaking Into My Life”.  Michelle’s determination and devotion to eradicate the stigma of mental illness and much more is awe inspiring.
