In this first episode of our season 2, we meet and learn the story of Ann Marie Kallberg. Ann Marie, also known as @babewithbipolar on Instagram, is not only living with her bipolar disorder, she is also openly sharing her "messy" and full life experiences to help others lessen the stigma of living with mental illness. Her story is refreshing in its honesty and transparency.
- Living with mental illness should carry no greater stigma than living with a physical illness.
- Don't be afraid to be open about mental illness.
- Being open about mental illness allows you to take ownership over your condition and can help others open up about theirs.
