Erica LobergErica Loberg was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. She attended Columbia University in New York and graduated with a BA in English.

She is a published poet and author of Inside the Insane. Her book is a memoir that takes an in-depth look at her own struggles with Bipolar II coupled with a look at inpatient psychiatric wards in Los Angeles County, California.

Tales of Manic Depression will cover all aspects of living with manic depression (also known as bipolar disorder).

“I was diagnosed with Bipolar II in 2006 and find little education on living with bipolar II versus Bipolar I,” says Erica. “Often times I try to hone in on that experiences since it is less understood or discussed in our culture than bipolar I disease. I also work with the mentally ill so glean material from that experience to further advocate for mental illness awareness.”
