New series- The Reality of Mental illness
Someone said to me the other day that having Bipolar disorder was seen as “cool” and “fashionable” so in response I have decided to write a new series of articles detailing the day to day reality of having a mental illness to show how different the reality of living with a mental illness is so different from the image portrayed by the media and certain celebrities that I shall not name.
I aim to cover quite a few topics but so far on my list I have…
Social workers/ CPNs
Staying in work/ study
Pregnancy and having a family
Being put on a section
Food and nutrition
I’m sure I will think of more sections as I go along but if anyone has any suggestions then please feel free to leave a comment with their idea or you can email me:
Also if anyone feels like writing a section with their personal day to day experiances of either one of the sections above or their own then I would love to hear from you.
