Climbing Everest w/schizophrenia

A very inspirational story was written in the BBC News this week on a man who trekked to Everest base camp.

"Stuart Baker Brown trekked to Everest Base Camp to draw attention to the positive achievements of people with mental illness. He recently opened an exhibition of his photographs in Dorset.

"I find it hard to see myself as an artist, rather than as someone who just has schizophrenia," Mr Baker Brown told the BBC News website.

"I was told I would probably never work again - that my whole life would just be battling with my illness."
