Sean Blackwell

…is sharing this excellent 7m 31s film. It is what I have said for a few years now, just that Sean says it better and more clearly.

These are not such new ideas. What is happening is that people like me and Sean are rediscovering stuff that has been known for years.

A man called Meyer was writing and telling as many people as he could about the ineffectiveness of labeling people with specific mental illness quite a while back (in 1896!). It is a difficult message to get across.

I studied, taught and wrote about bipolar. I even took the psychiatric drugs for it for 12 years. Gradually I discovered that bipolar is no more than a label given to people when an underlying cause has not been found.

Discovering a disorder does not have to mean a permanent disability gives opportunities for change and having a whole new life.
