Sauer’s insight into the roller-coaster ride of mental illness is based on a lifetime of personal and professional experience and is right on target.
She states, “The experience of being a patient myself – on the receiving end of care instead of the giving part, especially as an in-patient in a mental hospital – was eye-opening, humbling and life-changing. It also enabled me to gain a very deep understanding for my own and my future clients’ struggles and feelings.
