Davina Lytle is a freelance writer that lives in Canada. She is a wife, mother, and grandmother, and she is also a survivor and advocate for mental illness. Davina has been living with a mental illness for most of her life but wasn't diagnosed until 2005 when she was threatened by a man claiming to have a gun. Later that year, she was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The diagnosis was devastating for her; as well as for her family and it led to her being cast out by certain members of her family of origin. Since that time Davina has become passionate about mental health. She started writing a book that she's sure is going to be a great help to other survivors. Plus she writes a weekly blog chronicling what it's like to live with a mental injury in hopes that she can help end the stigma around mental illness by educating people through her own experiences with PTSD. Find her on www.DavinaLytle.com, also connect with her on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
