Thanks to the South China Morning Post for including Mental Ideas in this illuminating article by Anthea Rowan comparing her mother’s experience of unipolar depression to the stormy creative highs and lows of bipolar disorder in Monday’s SCMP! We didn’t know half the storm troupers mentioned in this article had bipolar disorder: from musicians Frank Sinatra and Demi Lovato to space cadets Buzz Aldrin and Sadie Kaye, the list goes up and down!
If you’re affected by bipolar disorder and looking to channel it in experimental creative ways – or if you are already doing so and wish to share your story – reach out! We would love to help you find an outlet or a platform for your work!
