Quick and Easy Bipolar Basics (part 2): Mania and Hypomania

Thank you, Adam

I think about those who have gone before me, about the people who paved the way for our book. Adam was one of those people, it’s what our non-profit is named after.

Some Hope

…and so because of my illness and the stigma associated with it. I tried to hide it. Thinking that if I was who I was on the inside no one would love me or support me. I never have been so glad to be wrong.

A Creative Insider’s Guide to Crazy

[fusion_builder_container hundred_percent=”yes” overflow=”visible”][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”]

CRAZY is an award-winning art book created by youth for youth as a visual “insider’s guide” to what depression and anxiety feel like and how they can affect your daily life and relationships.

Most of the 150 artists in Crazy were between the ages of 15 and 25.  Most were in high school, college, or working.  Their struggles with depression and anxiety were often unknown even to the people they were closest to.

The art and writings in Crazy are personal and real, based on first-hand experiences of youth living with mental illness.  And Crazy is packed with clinical information formatted for easy reference in everyday language.

The best part of Crazy is good news about recovery–yes yours–and how to get there.

So if you or someone you know is struggling with mental illness, pick up Crazy, open its pages, and find you are not alone.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
