Melanie Oldham

The winner of the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance’s Facing Us Video Contest, Melanie describes what it’s like to have bipolar I disorder (with especially good descriptions of manic symptoms) and how she grew to accept the diagnosis and mental health services that keep it in check. An authentic and touching portrayal from a personal perspective, it’s a great video for someone new to bipolar. I hope Melanie’s disclosure doesn’t affect her “stressful” career, and that winning brings her rewards beyond what she may have hoped for when she entered the annual user video contest. Congratulations, Melanie!
