Who Is Greg Hitchcock?

Greg Hitchcock is a graduate of the State University of New York and a U.S. Army veteran who is a fervent opponent of social stigma. He was formerly the editor of the Sidney Herald and lived an adventurous life in Sidney, Montana. He likes hiking in the Catskill Mountains, rock climbing in New Hampshire, and working with quarter horses in Saratoga Springs.

Drawing inspiration from his encounters with the stigma surrounding mental health, he has assembled “Stories of Stigma,” which provides hope to innumerable readers. He also has 20-plus years of experience producing videos, podcasts, and writing articles.

Greg is a seasoned journalist with years of experience creating material for customers. His area of expertise is creating multimedia information for medical professionals, conservation associations, and mental health organizations.

What Is His Book All About?

The book chronicles the attempts of a mentally ill soldier to overcome paranoid schizophrenia through his journey. Greg observes that he is transitioning from an ordinary person to a mentally worn-out, paranoid schizophrenia.

After a stint in the psychiatric ward in Washington, D.C.’s Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Greg is eventually released from the service. After years of self-examination, he returns to his roots and does what he loves most: writing.

Here’s a review from Amazon:

“Mr. Hitchcock is a consummate storyteller who helps readers understand what it is like to have schizophrenia and how painful and debilitating the symptoms are, not to mention the stigma that goes with them. This book will help readers change fear and ignorance to compassion.”

Schizophrenia in the Army will surely open the reader’s mind to what soldiers with schizophrenia are going through. Greg Hitchcock certainly does his best to deliver a great tale about a schizophrenic serving his country.

What Message Can People Get from Greg Hitchcock?

Being in the army is no easy feat. Nobody else knows, aside from fellow military personnel, how difficult it would’ve been to have schizophrenia on top of the mounting pressure. Reading through Greg’s story, readers will soon discover that putting one’s life for the country and the people in it is never easy. His tale also shows some of the much-needed assistance that those like him in the military should get.

With his experience in the field of writing, Greg can create a super unique tale.

Here is an excerpt from the book:

“Greg,” it said at the post commissary.

“Greg,” it said when I walked into the mess hall.

“Greg. Greg. Greg.”

Every time I heard my name called, it was always from the back of the room, as if someone was trying to sneak up on me. But every time I turned around, no one was there.
