Oftentimes we focus so much on the individual suffering with mental illness, we tend to overlook the impact it has on our families. Family deals with stigma, suffering, and pain as well and often feels helpless with their loved one and within the system. Their voices are JUST as important as the individual stories of triumph over mental illness.

Today, Eunice Brownlee will join me and talk about what it is like to have a father who lives with bipolar disorder. She has not only become HIS advocate, but a powerful voice in the advocacy movement for mental health.

Please join me as I talk to Eunice about how she defines her role as a child of someone with bipolar but has to play the role of an authority figure in his life to get what he needs in the system.

Much thanks to Eunice and all she does in our movement.
