About the Author

Having a history of mental illness and being diagnosed with manic depression I feel it only right that I contribute with my own ideas on mental health. I call my idea The Cake Theory, this is because schizophrenia and other mental disorders have more than one contributing factor and there are a variety of ingredients needed to develop it just as there are a number of ingredients that make up a cake.
