Did you know that Approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. (46.6 million) experiences mental illness in a given year? This is an obvious staggering number!!!
Michelle Dickinson Moravek joins the Functionised Podcast to discuss her life experiences growing up with her mother, who was diagnosed as bipolar. These experiences became a heartfelt, open and honest memoir, which became Breaking into My Life.
Michelle and the mad scientist Jim Goetz podcast on mental health and how society views it often as a stigma. Michelle looks to remove the negative connotation and those suffering in silence may be able to find the courage and receive the support they need for a healthy and productive life. Michelle's goal is a day where we as a whole can discuss mental illness in the same manner we discuss other diseases such as heart disease or diabetes. Conversations with a dark veil around it cannot possibly survive. It is through open and honest communication we can find acceptance and navigate mental illness to the fullest.
