Betsy has struggled with her own issues of mental health and addiction. After a long journey to proper diagnoses, Betsy established Betsy's Bell Jar to address the lack of accurate representation and understanding of various mental health disorders. She's passionate about this webzine being a multimedia, interactive community ensuring that no one in the mental health community has to go unheard or be misunderstood. She still has dreams of her scripts being green-lit and her novels published. However, first and foremost, this site and being a representative of her community are her top priority.
