• Black and Bipolar with Friends

    7 GIU 2021 · When I first started hearing these voices was in middle school I started to notice these episodes I was having with my mental health was taking a big toll on my body. I reached out to my same age friend about 15 years old to talk to her about the voices to let her know what I was going through. I did not expect a lot to come from it I just wanted to feel heard like I wasn't disappearing. Have you ever felt unheard? Do you have someone special you can share all your fears with? https://www.healthfulchat.org/bipolar-chat-room.html https://www.7cups.com/home/bipolar/ https://www.dbsalliance.org/

An in depth look at the reality of living life Bipolar as an African American. Hosted by mental health advocate Toni Wooden. This podcast is about my experience as a black woman that has navigated around my life with Bipolar type 2 with psychosis(I hear two voices daily). I want to break down myths and stigmas around people with Bipolar disorders. My experience is not the only experience when it comes to black women and having a mental disorder. However, I want to give a platform to people like me to talk about our experiences and share with the world who we are and how we navigate everyone and everything.
