About the Book

Healing Schizoaffective is a gritty and real portrayal of life with mental illness, and evidence that healing is possible. If you or a loved one is suffering with mental illness, this book is for you! If you are a mental health care worker, and would like an inside view from someone who suffered with a mental illness, and to see how healing is possible, this book is also for you. Break through stigmas, and see mental illness from a whole new perspective!

The intention of this book can be seen in the following journal entry written during the illness: “It’s what I have learned from my experience that motivates me to keep going. I know that someday, and even today in little ways, I can use what I’ve been through to help people. That’s the greatest gift. I don’t look at this disorder as something I have to bear. I look at it as something that can inspire me to live a better life.”

About the Author

Joshua Alexander is a Cornell graduate who was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, and spent 10 years battling the illness, being hospitalized, and at one point living in a group home for the mentally ill. Eventually, with the help of a homeopathic doctor, he was able to heal from the illness for good, go back to work full time, get married and buy a home, and is now living a normal life.
