I’m The Face of Mental Illness

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.
