This is a much different video than anything I've done before, but its something I've wanted to do for a very long time. Thanks to the endless support of my amazing family and friends, the comfort of my faith, and the wonderful treatment I've received, I finally feel ready to open up about my struggle with Bipolar 1. For some time now, I've felt very passionate about Mental Health and Mental Health Awareness, all while being quiet about my own. 1 in 5 American adults has a mental illness, and the time has come for people to no longer speak of these incredibly real and very serious diseases in hushed whispers or by telling those that suffer to 'just get over it'. We must encourage them to get the treatment they need and remind them that they are never, ever alone. Thank you all so much for watching :)
