Carrie Fisher, who may be best known for her role as Princess Leia in “Star Wars,” for which she gained international recognition at the age of 19, will speak on Monday, May 24 at the Convocation during the American Psychiatric Association Annual Meeting in New Orleans.

Fisher has struggled with bipolar disorder, drug and alcohol addiction. She has written about her triumphs and travails in the autobiographical and semi-autobiographical best-selling novels Postcards from the Edge, Surrender the Pink, Wishful Drinking, and The Best Awful There Is. Fisher also wrote the screen play for the movie Postcards from the Edge, which starred Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine. She has recently completed a major run of her autobiographical one-woman play based on her novel Wishful Drinking.
