Hello, friends! In this episode, I answer two really important questions that tackle issues surrounding suicidality, talking to your loved ones about your mental health, and becoming a Psychologist with Bipolar.
Super excited because this week I have my beautiful wife, Joelle Duff, on the podcast again. You always have such great feedback when she’s on the show and it’s honestly just nice to have a good excuse to sit and talk with my favorite person.
This week, I have an interview with the wonderful Bipolar Barbie. She is a mental health advocate from Australia. In this interview, she describes her experiences with bipolar and talks about why she is passionate about being a mental health advocate. We cover topics from her first manic episode during law school to the importance of medication in her journey. I think you’ll really enjoy this one.
In this episode, I take a question from someone about how they can help their romantic partner who is great most of the time but gets suicidal or violent every so often. How can she get him to go to therapy or recognize the that there are actual issues going on? I give my perspective on this question and also spend some time defining bipolar disorder. Enjoy!
