Musician Karen Lidral talks to Joe about how music has always been a way for her to find peace while living with depression and bipolar.
Karen Lidral is a musician, artist, and former cast member from This is My Brave. She is also the Director of Social Media for Gr8ter.org.
Growing up with a mentally ill parent, music was Karen's escape. However, it wasn't until this year that she received her own Bipolar Disorder diagnosis. After a lifetime spent running from the stigma of mental illness, Karen is facing her fears, one note at a time. She makes music and other art to spread a message of hope for anyone struggling with mental health issues to know that they are not alone, and help is out there.
