  • Newbie's Guide To Bipolar Disorder; 10 Keys to Understanding Your Impairment

    15/09/2019 Duration: 34min

    I was diagnosed nearly 20 years ago. Through years as a patient, a counselor, and podcast host I've seen several key themes emerge with people newly diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. This episode outlines the 10 keys to understanding Bipolar that I wish I had when I was first diagnosed. Clearly, I deliver these topics with a casual hyperbole, and this is not a medical show. However, the points I make are heartfelt, and things I've experienced firsthand. I hope you or your friends and family might benefit from knowing some of these things upfront.

  • Borrowing anti-stigma tactics from the homosexual community; what works?

    28/06/2018 Duration: 43min

    Since the DSM (mental health diagnoses manual) was first published in 1968 until 1989 it listed homosexuality as a mental disorder. First, it was Sexual Orientation Disorder. Then it became Sexual Orientation Disturbance. Now, it's fully embraced in parades around the world each June. Why can't the Bipolar community engage the same tactics to have their "disorder" embraced in such a joyous way? What strategies and tactics can the Bipolar community borrow from the gay community to reduce our own stigma? Listen as John talks to a gentleman who is both gay and depressed. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bipolarstyle/message

  • Bipolar Style and the Art of Emotions

    12/04/2018 Duration: 13min

    John explains the transition to producing a second podcast, not specifically about Bipolar disorder. After studying more about "labeling theory" John wants to expand his focus on more than just a stigmatized neurological disease. The first draft of this new, short-form, solo podcast was called Art of Emotions, but that has already evolved into an even newer podcast called "Manic Episodes." Depending on when you find this, John may have moved on to bigger things, or faded away altogether. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/bipolarstyle/message
