William Jiang, MLS
Sometimes it is the blind man who can see most truly. Such is the case with William Jiang, MLS. He had a severe paranoid psychotic break from reality at nineteen years of age and now is quite sane and knows how to achieve and maintain mental health, naturally. He wants people to think about how to live healthier in this society that is getting mentally and physically sicker. This is why he is the author of more than fifty popular Kindle books in English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French which have gone to #1 in the USA and have sold in Canada, the United Kingdom, Spain, Mexico, Argentina, France, Germany, India, Australia, Italy, and Japan. He is a former Columbia University/NYSPI Medical Library Chief, designer, and he is a speaker of English, Spanish, French, and Portuguese.
Mr. Jiang's critically-acclaimed autobiography is "A Schizophrenic Will: A Story of Madness, A Story of Hope." Mr Jiang and his intense 20+ year struggle with schizophrenia is iconoclastic because he challenges us to think differently about stereotypes of mental illness. His peers would be world movers like Philip K. Dick, John Nash, and Elyn Saks. Most movies and media news paint one-dimensional, thinly drawn caricatures of mentally ill people, instilling fear. Refreshingly, words that could describe Mr. Jiang's life and work include: brilliant, passionate, artistic, profound, knowledgeable, inspirational, and even "wise teacher". Mr. Jiang’s magnum opus in the field of psychiatry is "The Medical Librarian's Guide to Natural Mental Health: Anxiety, Bipolar, Depression, Schizophrenia, and Digital Addiction: Nutrition, and Complementary Therapies, 4th edition" where Mr. Jiang shares deep insights into non-pharmaceutical natural strategies that are all-too-needed in this world of Big Macs and XBoxes.
