Some people can recover, some experience remissions, and some, through no lack of trying, continue to suffer. To use a single inspiring anecdote provides an unbalanced perspective. Spontaneous remission of psychiatric symptoms sometimes occurs, but, statistically, and particularly for disorders that may involve psychosis, treatment offers a better chance at a better quality of life. That's very different from recovery being possible for everyone, a claim which has no data with which to back it up.
