My name is Shuvender Sem, or Shubi for short. I grew up in suburban Pennsylvania, and while running my family’s store after college I began having auditory hallucinations. As the hallucinations intensified I was hospitalized time and again.
Since then I’ve had a life long journey through schizophrenia and to eventual recovery. My hope is that by telling my story, I can help others to overcome mental illness.
