This channel is a big step for me. I have just begun to talk about mental illness candidly on camera after participating for 20 years in the community as an independent peer presenter, using my autobiographical plays "Do You Want To Buy My Brain," "JUMP," and "Jill: Anatomy of A Suicide," all dealing with growing up with bipolar disorder; and also as the founder Jump! Theatre Company, which produces professional theater about personal experiences of mental illness. I have played myself and others using a script, and I have blogged about mental illness. I am the author of "Writing While Manic," an e-book (look for it in the Amazon Kindle Department), compiled from 5 years of blogging about art, aging and mental illness.

I believe there is such a thing as responsible blogging that is especially important in regard to health issues. I will not publish any video about bipolar disorder that is not heartfelt and well-thought out.
