Halley Cornell is a content strategist at WebMD and longtime begrudging companion of depression and anxiety. She has worked for more than a dozen years in multiple health care settings advocating for holistic mental and physical health.
Cornell's background as a community news journalist and communications professional for nonprofit HIV, hepatitis, and substance abuse patient education inform her current work as both a blogger and fiction writer. She writes from a perspective of her 20-year trek learning to navigate life with treatment-resistant depression and clinical anxiety.
This experience, combined with a stubborn belief that openness is the cure for conditions that isolate, drive her commitment to ongoing communication with others in and around the mental health patient community.
