Dori Owen

Learning she had Bipolar Disorder 1 as an adult, Dori has used her tumultuous journey of diagnosis, noncompliance, hospitalizations, and ultimately acceptance and self-advocacy to tell her story to others to share the “oh, me too” moments for people to understand they are not alone in their mental illness journey. She has a Tumblr blogspot; is an author on Ask A Bipolar; created the Facebook Diary Of An Arizona Girl; is an artist and writer; and a frequent blogger advocating mental health awareness. Dori holds an MBA from the University of Nevada, Reno and worked for 20 years as a government project manager. She lives in Arizona with her beloved dog and cat. She also has a grown son in Portland, Oregon who very much resents being introduced after her pets. But she loves him the most! You can find Dori at Tumblr, Twitter and Ask A Bipolar.

  1. Another amazing profile, Nicole! Like Dori I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder as an adult, took the meds (over 25), decided to taper off medication and be med-free, went through the hospitalizations and finally found medications that lifted my bipolar depression.

    I LOVE the picture! 😉
