Making the decision in 2017 to publicly disclose that I live with bipolar disorder was the best thing that I've done in my life. It was wonderfully cathartic, invigorating and empowering. Perhaps the greatest outcome was that my speaking up led to the founding of The Bipolar Express and our participating in Mental Health in Motion. I am so fortunate to be surrounded by wonderful family members, friends and colleagues who are on a mission to end the isolation and stigma surrounding mental illness.
Please consider making a donation to The Bipolar Express. All of the funds will be used to support a terrific youth mental health initiative that delivers mobile health services to schools and youth centres.
