From Madness to Recovery

By Karen Tyrrell

My name’s Karen Tyrrell, passionate Australian author, mental health advocate, teacher, motivational speaker and workshop presenter, seen on TV Today Tonight and heard on ABC radio.
I’ve recovered from parent-teacher abuse, bipolar disorder AND post traumatic stress disorder. I wrote ME & HER: a Memoir of Madness … finalist in the Queensland mental health week achievement awards.

My tell-all story about me, an Australian Teacher harassed by parents at my school until I could take no more.
‘In May 2005, my mad half Her, was born.’

Police discover me hiding in a lonely motel, forcing me into the frightening world of the psychiatric system.

ME & HER is about my two personas.
ME ─ wife, mother, writer and teacher.

HER ─ manic, psychic, healer to the living, telepathic to the dead, AND I’m very psychotic.
WHY did I become so crazy?
HOW did I reclaim my life?
