So I’m part of a planning committee for a series of talks in my city called “MeToo” and the first one is happening tonight! We really want to make this an international conversation so the whole thing is going to be filmed. I’m also going to be live tweeting the event for the online community to have that conversation as well. You can follow the live tweets on my website at http://www.redefiningbipolar.org/live-events and/or follow me on twitter @redefinebipolar. It’d be pretty cool to see this event series spread to other parts of the world.
The whole idea is that it’s totally possible to thrive in life if you have a mental illness. It’s a community conversation that brings together people with mental illnesses, caregivers, and clinicians for a truly interdisciplinary approach to talking about mental health. Whether it’s online or in person, I hope the message is loud and clear tonight!
