Education, Education and Education!

In episode 16 of South African show ‘Hello Doctor‘, science journalist Elsabe Brits talks about living with bipolar disorder, how it has affected her life and that of her partner. Her message – be open, be honest and talk about bipolar and help to tackle the very real issues of stigma, misunderstanding and prejudice.

The message from the clinicians is also clear: there is also hope – bipolar disorder should be treated like any other chronic illness, and when it is treated properly, the prognosis is good. You can watch this excellent show here:
