California Bipolar Foundation Educational Video

- An anti-stigma video describes famous people who had mental health issues and succeeded. A psychiatrist describes how common it is for people to be affected, and a family talks about life with their son with bipolar disorder. The California Bipolar Foundation’s family support group members are interviewed. A 10-year-old girl with bipolar is also profiled. Kevin Hines, who survived a jump from the Golden Gate Bridge, is interviewed as well, and Kay Redfield Jamison speaks for a few moments.

A good short documentary packed with interviews and information.
