Welcome back everyone! This month we are bringing you another wonderful person from our own lives - Ellie is Bekah's oldest friend, they met aged 3 at nursery and have been part of each other's lives ever since. Ellie received a diagnosis of bipolar disorder in her early twenties after struggling with her mental health in her teenage years. She shares with us her journey of learning to understand and manage her condition, and other people learning to understand and support her. We hope that this conversation gives a useful insight into some of the misconceptions about bipolar, as well as what people who live with this diagnosis might be going through. Everyone's story will be different - this is Ellie's.
