Caroline Fei-Yeng Kwok

With the stress of being a new immigrant and the breakup of a marriage, Caroline was diagnosed with bipolar disorder shortly after arriving in Canada. Multiple early hospitalizations resulted in social exclusion from her local community whose members considered her an invalid for life. Through the encouragement of understanding mental health professionals and her own research into the concept of recovery, she was able to write two books, Free to Fly: A Story of Manic Depression, and Journeys of Renewed Hope, both of which advocate for mental health awareness. Caroline is a program provider to immigrants of colour survivors at a centre in Toronto and continues to give presentations at hospitals and at national and international conferences on mental health and recovery.
