Keith Lyon

Experiencing psychosis and paranoia in his 20s, Keith spent 10 years in and out of psychiatric units. Stigma about needing medication and feeling that people didn’t understand him were barriers to his recovery. With the support of his family and close friends, his faith, work and community engagement support, Keith has spent the last several years on a positive path, now working at a local supermarket. Keith proudly shares his experiences with schizophrenia to offer others hope and donates proceeds from his four children’s books to the psychiatric unit that helped him.
