Lawrence JW Cooper
Author / Poet

As a psychologist and poet, Lawrence J.W. Cooper is uniquely equipped to deal with the subject of mental disorders on both an emotional and academic level. Having walked the path of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Depression, he wishes to help others through his book, The Room. It is both an autobiography of his own journey as well as a tool for an individual’s path to self-healing. In his book “Bi”, he again traces his journey through understanding and accepting his Bisexual Orientation.
