DR. PRINCESS FUMI HANCOCK answers your burning question on the 5 Minutes Success Blueprint

She has since graduation spent most of her time serving the Veteran population at a Veteran Hospital in Los Angeles. This experience exposed her to various aspects of psychiatry: from patients with PTSD (returning from war), Major Depressive Disorder, Schizophrenia, and Eating Disorders~ all coming to her with dual diagnoses (i.e. Medical complications). Her advanced nursing degree dissertation focused on the Use of Mobile Application as an adjunct treatment for female patients with Anorexia Nervosa who are from communities where mental illness is regarded as taboo while for her advanced communication arts degree, she wrote a feature film called “The Royal Bird”, a story which was an expose of some social ills within the African communities. The screenplay was auctioned to one of the largest TV Network in Africa, Nigerian Television Authority (NTA).

She continues to provide cutting edge solutions & exposés (through her Books, TV Show, Radio Show, Seminars/Conferences, Documentaries/Feature Films & Online Courses) caring for those with mental illness. But most importantly, she has been able to find a middle ground between her love of writing, making films, and her expertise in mental health.  She accomplishes all of these through her documentaries and feature films, which feature characters who provide insight into the issues surrounding mental illness in our society.
