Once known as manic depression, bipolar disorder is a potentially devastating mental illness with no current cure that affects six million people in the United States. Marked by extreme mood swings from peaks of uncontrollable mania to dark valleys of depression and despair, the illness controls the lives of those who suffer from it, their families and their friends. Voices of Bipolar Disorder takes the reader inside this challenging disorder through dozens of true stories by those whose lives have been touched by this illness. Sometimes shocking, often inspiring, and always revealing, Voices of Bipolar Disorder get to the heart of this debilitating disease. Featuring a comprehensive resources section for those seeking help, a lucid overview of the disease by Dr. Marina Benaur of the Columbia University School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry, and a revealing roundtable discussion with the creators and cast of the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Next to Normal, a play that reveals the disorder to the public for the first time, Voices of Bipolar Disorder puts a human face on a disease cloaked in misunderstanding and mystery for centuries.
