Mary Ellen Copeland, Ph.D, is an author, educator and mental health recovery advocate. Her work is based on her on-going study of the day-to-day coping strategies of people who experience psychiatric symptoms, and how people have gotten well and stayed well. She undertook these studies out of her own frustration with dealing with her own recurring symptoms. She has achieved long term wellness and stability by using many of the coping strategies she learned while writing her books.
Mary Ellen develops resources and training programs based on her findings. She has traveled around the world with her husband, Ed Anthes, teaching recovery concepts, skills and strategies to people who experience symptoms, their supporters and care providers and is well known in the worldwide mental health recovery movement.
