Hi my name is Jeanie.  I’m bipolar.  With a few other things thrown in there.  I’m here because I’m tired of the stigma.  I put on a great face and unless I tell you I am mentally ill.  Only a few people know it. 

This ends now.  I have nothing to be ashamed of.  The mental health community needs help.  We’ve been neglected for to long.  

Our voices need to be heard.
