Daniel Hotchner entered psychiatric care as a teenager after severe bullying left him struggling with trauma. Counseling failed to help, and Hotchner was diagnosed with severe depression and admitted to a psychiatric hospital.
Descending into darkness, Hotchner found himself in a secure ward surrounded by an enormous fence. This was where the most aggressive patients were housed, and it seemed like this was where Hotchner would stay, imprisoned physically and mentally.
Then, a caring psychiatrist changed the course of Hotchner’s life, diagnosing him with bipolar disorder. Hotchner received the treatment and medication he so desperately needed—all because one medical professional refused to give up on him.
Once released from hospital and working to reclaim his life with many new caring psychiatrists, Hotchner encountered a second threat to his happiness. Debilitating pain drove him past the limits of his endurance. Once again, Hotchner had to beat the odds—to be the outlier no one thought would make it.
The inspirational story of one man’s struggle with mental and physical illness, Dreaming to Be the Outlier reveals the world of psychiatric care from the patient’s point of view, demonstrating how diligent care and effective treatment can alter the course of a person’s life.
