Lydia Greico has a master’s degree in occupational studies and is licensed as a psychiatric technician. Psychiatric technicians advocate for people who cannot advocate for themselves. Greico is now retired from this profession, but she still advocates for those who need it.
Greico has authored two other books and articles on different subjects. She earned her MA degree from California State University at Long Beach in 2006. It took her four years to complete this book, as it brought back many painful memories.
