About Eric Fergerson

Biography

I am a Certified Peer Specialist in the state of Georgia. At various times I have been diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Depression with Psychotic Features, Mild Depression, Schizoaffective Disorder and Schizophrenia. Every time I sit under a psychiatrist it seems I get a different diagnosis. My mother and brother developed Schizophrenia. She at the age of 27. He after having a very successful career as a college professor. Because of my family's history of mental illness I developed an interest in mental health and received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and my Masters of Science in Educational Psychology. I have been working on my recovery for the last 20 years. I have been employed in the field of mental health for the past 10 years. I have a lot of personal experience with Schizophrenia Spectrum Disorders. The disease does not scare me. It is a very misunderstood disease. Let me help you understand the disorder, work on a recovery plan or just support you or your family in your journey with this complex disease.
