Bipolar Disorder
Listen
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, bipolar disorder affects approximately 5.7 million American adults. During her first semester of college Charita Cole Brown experienced a psychotic episode frighteningly reminiscent of her grandmother's own breakdown and subsequent hospitalization. She was later diagnosed with a severe form of bipolar disorder. Brown, who has a BA in English from Wesleyan University and an MAT in Early Childhood Education from Towson University, chronicles her personal journey with this mental disorder detailing her struggle to accept her diagnosis and create a life full of love, hope and success.
