UP/DOWN: a documentary about bipolar disorder

This is a full length video about bipolar disorder called “UP/DOWN”. It is a good tool to help educate about the illness. I believe education is key to ending stigma associated with mental illness.
There are approximately 5.7 million people in the United States with bipolar disorder. In an attempt to eliminate the mystery and misinformation surrounding the illness, many throughout the country diagnosed with this condition were interviewed extensively. They diligently explain the struggle to balance themselves between floating to a state of euphoria and sinking to a devastating depression.[…] In short, “Up/Down” is a personal analysis of bipolar disorder from those living with it.
