Jesse Interviews Tom Roberts - a speaker that focuses on Mental Illness Stigmas and his journey through his own Bi-Polar disorder.  Tom received a M.A. in Radio-TV-Film, was a Ph.D cadidate in Theatre Arts, worked as a TV News Co-Anchor and Radio News Director, served as an Associate Professor of Broadcasting, was a Technical Writer as well as instructed in Technical Writing, worked as a professional Actor (Screen Actors Guild) and was a Voice-Over Artist.  He eventually experienced Cognitive Impairment as a result of Bi-Polar Disorder leaving him unable to work in his trained industry.  Tom now speaks to groups about this disorder in hopes of keeping people from suicide due to being afraid of the stigma of their disorder; as happened with his brother and sister.  We will be discussing the importance of handling stigmas and facing disorders.  You can learn more about Tom's work at:  www.tomspeaksout.com
