No Longer Silent

No Longer Silent

 

Through researching some articles on Bipolar Disorder, I came across this article and was astonished. This man was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and his doctors and fellow patients all told him to keep it a secret. He was determined to speak out and not keep quiet! More people should be like him. Shame on the doctors for telling him to keep it a secret and shame on society for discriminating against things we don’t understand. Let me know what you guys think !!!!

  1. That’s a great article. I had a student in a Master’s program who said she had a class assignment to pick a disorder and tell people she had it, to see reactions to psychopathology. She picked Bipolar and said it was sad how quickly people started treating her differently; that even her church stopped allowing her to lead a small group that she was part of for youth.
