    Courtney… I just want you to know what a contribution you are making to destigmatizing mental illness. Every time I teach the Family2Family class for NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), more than half of my students (family members) have a loved one experiencing or diagnosed with Bipolar disorders. Next to having you talk to relatives who have relatives with Bipolar disorders, your blog ( is the next best thing.

    Be encouraged. You and your efforts matter.

    Cool. I am learning how to use this blog tool myself. I like the different pages. I’ll have to do that. I’m loving what I read so far. Like you, I want to educate and reduce/eliminate (I can hope and pray!) stigma.
