First of all, THANK YOU for listening to this episode. Stigmas play a huge part in the reasons as to why people don’t seek help as well as why they’re afraid to tell others about the current condition of their mental health. This is the first in a two-part show series about the common misconceptions and myths about bipolar disorder.
