Kevin L. Allen, SUDPT (he/him) was diagnosed with bipolar and anxiety disorder in his 30’s. He has lived with co-occurring substance use disorder for over 40 years. In dealing with the disease, he has been in and out of inpatient mental health and substance rehabs along with multiple incarcerations. Throughout the process, he has endured isolation, maltreatment, misdiagnosis, and endless medication routines, only to find results with a family doctor and mental health provider who listened empathetically and helped Kevin live a focused life. Kevin has since earned an AAS with a focus on equity and advocacy work. He was a key inspiration for the Post Prison Education Program’s founding 15 years ago.
