Up/Down Bipolar Documentary *trigger warning to video not post*

This is a video called “Up/Down” It’s a bipolar documentary. It raises good points such as how under educated the public is but one member of the public realises that a lot of bipolar cases are just having pills pushed on them but no psychological treatment. It goes through the stigma and misconception of it, history of the disorder including how it was historically treated, symptoms (for family or friends or people interested), new research including finding what chromosomes are involved and what psychological aspects trigger it. They talk to real people with the disorder as well as professionals.
Side note: Kyle has an awesome hat. KYLE HAS AN AWESOME HAT! i like kyle. because he has an awesome hat. Ok.
Information on electroshock therapy – a first hand account. Medications and how helpful they are (but remember take them with a pinch of salt as not everyone is the same). Treatment. Just watch it 🙂

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your
    presentation but I find this topic to be actually something which I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for
    me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
