I’m M. and I have bipolar disorder II. But more than that, I’m also a mental health advocate, reader, writer, and tweeter. I created Mad Girl’s Lament as a way to share my mental health story, bust stigma, and generally discuss the state of the mental health system. Hopefully it will become a space where you’ll feel safe enough to share your stories too! Busting mental health stigma is all about talking candidly about our experiences – the ups and downs – with mental illness.
Why Mad Girl’s Lament? It was a riff on the Sylvia Plath poem, Mad Girl’s Love Song. Plath was a fellow ‘mad’ girl and I often find her writings resonate with my mental health struggles.
So grab a cup of tea and settle in!
