I love it when the smallest things take on a life of their own. That’s exactly what happened when Laura, of Mrs. Bipolarity, did an excellent post a few weeks ago titled Stigma Sucks Sunday: A Recap. The post was her response to the medias recent barrage of negative portrayals of those of us with mental illness.
Upon reading Laura’s post Graham, of The Bipolar Place, did a short vlog to show that he is The Face of Mental Illness and asked others to do the same…and that is how a movement began.
If you live with a mental illness, or have a loved one who does, we are asking you to join us to show the REAL faces of mental illness. For more information just pop on over to Mrs. Bipolarity’s blog post, The (Real) Faces of Mental Illness, and get all the information you’ll need. Thank you to our three pioneers, Graham of The Bipolar Place, Laura of Mrs. Bipolarity, and also Laura of Bipolar for Life.
I’m very excited to be a part of this and hope it excites you to come aboard.

and what a beautiful face it is!
Awwww shucks, Deb. You’re making me blush.
It is a lovely face and you have a friendly voice to go with it! Now pat your back.
Wow, with you and Deb around I’m going to get an overinflated ego.
so good to hear your voice! unfortunately, I am in hiding from search engines at the moment, although I think this idea is awesome and your face certainly is lovely.
Thank you. Here I’ve been feeling old and tired looking.
you should no better than to trust your feelings on that score.
KNOW better. I’m old and tired and need to go to bed! 😀
Oh that is so great! I hope the project works out awesomely!
I do too, kyrolin. I think it will.
